Church Bells

Updated on March 3, 2011

Church Bells

I heard the church bells ringing
In the early morning hour
The world was, yet, still sleeping
as they chimed from St. Mark's tower.
Their song was rich and soothing
in the early break of day,
a gentle, sweet reminder
to awake, and pause to pray.
They sang in sacred melody
of tender lilting tune...
their message one of reverence
at the start of morning bloom.
I love the church bells ringing
In the early morning hour,
That chime at first light's greeting
from the walls of St. Mark's tower.

      There is just something so special and soul searching as the toll of a church's bells. I often have listened to them and felt spiritually inspired to compose.

      Simply beautiful and calming, I could hear those gentle to my ear chimes of bells from St. Mark's tower. Thank you for sharing the sweet sounds.
