The School Bell

Text:  Edith Sanford Tillotson 
Music:  Bentley D. Ackley 
OHT Incipit:  

I'm the school-bell, ding, dong, ding!
Listen to the song I sing,
When you hear me call to you,
Hurry your work to do,
Heed the message that I bring,
Ding! Dong! Ding!

Come, my children, ding, dong, ding!
Never loiter when I ring,
Strong and true your lives will be
If you will attend to me,
If you'll heed me when I ring,
Ding! Dong! Ding!

Thus I call you, ding, dong, ding!
To and fro I gladly swing,
Little friends I love you all,
That is why I often call,
That is why for you I ring,
Ding! Dong! Ding!
