Bless us, big brass bells:

toll between our earth and clouds,

bless the solitary in busy crowds;

sing thy song, long and loud!

 

Bless us. softer sibling sounds:

descant downfall, sensual peals,

bless ringers fingers, feet and heels:

hope pulled rope much mercy reveals.

 

Bless us spirit-sparked icon song:

holy harmonies, slowly accelerating,

bless towered music  – saving, creating:

satiate hearts, no hesitating!

 

O aural icons, O sonic saints,

haul down hope for land and nation,

full circle chimes the best creation

cleanse stale hearts with God’s incarnation.

 

Why many Russians freeze when they hear bells…
