Poetry of Kansas

Liberty Bell

Ring on, ring on sweet Liberty Bell
      For peace on earth, good will to men.
A story true, ye kindly tell,
      From Bunker Hill down to Argonne.
 
Ring on, ring on sweet Liberty Bell
      In every clime where freedom dwells
Your sweetest strains and imparting knells
      On New Year's eve was heard again.
 
Ring on, ring on sweet Liberty Bell
      Peal after peal, your music swell
Beneath the blue the white and red
      That waves so proudly today o'er the living
And so sacredly o'er the dead.
