Ring Them Bells

Ring them bells St Peter
Where the four winds blow,
Ring them bells with an iron hand
So the people will know.
Oh it’s rush hour now
On the wheel and the plough
And the sun is going down
Upon the sacred cow.

Ring them bells Sweet Martha
For the poor man’s son,
Ring them bells so the world will know
That God is one.
For the shepherd is asleep
Where the willows weep
And the mountains are filled
With lost sheep.


Ring them bells St Catherine
From the top of the room,
Ring them from the fortress
For the lilies that bloom.
For the lines are long
And the fighting is strong
And they’re breaking down the distance
Between right and wrong.

—Bob Dylan, “Ring Them Bells” (1989)
