8892. Ring Out, Ring Out, O Christmas Bells

1 Ring out, ring out, O Christmas bells!
A tale of joy your music tells;
A Savior King was born today
To rule the hearts of men for aye.

Refrain:
For this we join to swell the strain
The angels sang o’er Judah’s plain!
Glory to God, good will to men,
Shall rise and fill the heav’ns again.

2 O Lord of lords, and King of kings,
Sweet peace and joy Thy presence brings;
We know the Father loves us well
To rescue thus our souls from hell. [Refrain]

3 But who can measure all the love
That brought Thee from Thy throne above,
With us to live, for us to die,
That we might reign with Thee on high. [Refrain]

4 Dear Savior, elder brother, friend,
Abide with us till life shall end;
And then, when death shall set us free,
Within the kingdom won by Thee. [Refrain]
