The Chimes of Liberty (1922)

words by Leo Wood, music by Edwin Franko Goldman
There is music in the air, you can hear it ev'rywhere,
Far and near each tone so clear rings as it brings us all good cheer.
'Tis a song of happiness, ev'ry heart it means to bless
With its strains so appealing over us stealing like a sweet caress.
Like the chimes they ring out with the dawn
Spreading gladness like a hope new born.
North, East, South, West, you'll hear them ringing for you,
They're sending sunshine to each heart that beats true.
They're the chimes that fill the world with joy,
Thoughts of discontent they soon destroy.
They're chimes of gladness and they never will cease
In this land of happiness and peace.

They're the Chimes of Liberty, chimes that ring for you and me.
Where ev'ry loyal heart beats true they bring joy anew.
'Tis a song of loyalty of a nation brave and free.
Let us pray that they will ring for aye, our country's Chimes of Liberty.

Hear them ringing as they're bringing gladness to each heart.
Hear them saying while they're praying each to do his part.
Liberty, Liberty, Ah!

They're the Chimes of Liberty, chimes that ring for you and me.
Where ev'ry loyal heart beats true they bring joy anew.
'Tis a song of loyalty of a nation brave and free.
Let us pray that they will ring for aye, our country's Chimes of Liberty.
