Broken Church Bell - Bell of Liberty

738 DZRB AM Band, 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday
Mended broken bell at San Juan Bautista parish church, San Juan, La Union

You have reached your end, oh sacred bell:
sentinel on a tower
crier of news,
marker of time,
companion in mass
rouser of sleep,
emissary of peace;
you warn of danger
heed warning at sea
hail the king,
celebrate victory
condole the lost
tolls the dead,
peal in dirge
glorify rituals.

Your master's gone, the voice of heaven ceased
with your demise you're forever free;
And man bestows you the honor at last
the title of Bell of Liberty. ~
