Let The Bells Ring

O love, don't ask what's coming tomorrow,
What does it matter what the future may bring?
Nor dwell on a past that brought so much sorrow;
Today is the day to let the bells ring!

Observe the hummingbird sipping the nectar,
She's not concerned about foolish things;
Tomorrow's problems don't seem to affect her,
Today is the day to let the bells ring!

We walked lonely paths before our meeting,
Now we have a reason to let our hearts sing;
What sound is more lovely that happy hearts beating?
Today is the day to let the bells ring!

O love, gather closer to the warmth of the fire,
The gypsy's violin is beginning to sing;
The wolves cry and moan as the moon climbs higher,
Tonight is the night to let the bells ring!

Yes, let the bells ring, let them tell their story,
We found the happiness only love can bring;
Let them announce it in all their glory,
Today is the day to let the bells ring!
