For whom doth that victorie bell toll?

And for whom doth that lady wait?

And when he doth returneth home

As his praises are hailed and sung

Will anyone but he somberly know

For whom that bell doth really toll?

For whom doth that church bell toll?

And for whom doth those martyrs wait?

And when they doth greet those Saved ones

As they are mourned yet never praised

Will anyone but those martyrs sincerely know

For whom that bell doth really toll?

For whom doth that death bell toll?

And for whom doth the Heavens wait?

And when he doth arriveth home

As tears are given and prayers intoned

Will only his executer somberly know

For whom that bell doth really toll?
