There is something of the marvelous in the hearing of the Tower Bell when it rings out its song into the skies!

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky, …
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

These lines are from a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, published in 1850.
