513. Ding dong! merrily on high

1. Ding dong! Merrily on high
In heav'n the bells are ringing:
Ding dong! verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel-singing.

Glo------------------------------ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
Glo------------------------------ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!

2. E'en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And io, io, io,
By priest and people sungen:

Glo------------------------------ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
Glo------------------------------ria,

3. Hosanna in excelsis!
Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers;
May you beautifully rhyme
Your e'entime song, ye singers.

Glo------------------------------ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
Glo------------------------------ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
