The Bells of St. Mary's is a 1917 popular song. The music was written by A. Emmett Adams, the lyrics[1] by Douglas Furber, following a visit to St. Mary's Church, England.

The song was revived in 1945, in the film of the same name, by Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman.

The bells of St. Mary's
Ah! hear they are calling
The young loves, the true loves
Who come from the sea

And so, my beloved
When red leaves are falling
The love bells shall ring out
Ring out for you and me

The bells of St. Mary's
At sweet even time
Shall call me, beloved
To come to your side

And out in the valley
In sound of the sea
I know you'll be waiting
Yes, waiting for me

At the porch of St. Mary's
I'll wait there for you
In your soft wedding dress
With its ribbons of blue

In the church of St. Mary's
Sweet voices shall sing
For you and me, dearest
The wedding bells ring
