Christendom's Bells

This post was written in 30 minutes.
We sang "My Country Tis of Thee" in church on Sunday, and as I was singing, I noticed what an interesting rhyme/meter it had, and I decided to try to mimic it.

So you should be able to sing this poem to that tune.

When e'er your sweet chimes ring
My heart begins to sing -
Christendom's bells.
Sing for the God who wins
Victory over sins
And for the souls who've been
Rescued from hell.

Call to sweet fellowship,
In the truth to equip,
Elders and youth.
Gather the faithful few,
Minds and hearts to renew,
Train us to hear and do,
Soldiers of Truth.

Pause as the death knell tolls,
Weep for departed souls -
Those without breath.
Hear in that doleful song,
Hope that arises strong,
Right conquers over wrong,
Life over death.

I sang it in my head. (Didn't want Duke to start howling.) Great words and they fit.
