1 Happy Christmas bells are ringing,
Everywhere, everywhere;
Merry Christmas bells are ringing
Upon the wintry air;
Telling of the love of God’s dear Son,
How He came from Heav’n to earth,
Ringing in the morning, once again,
Of our dear Savior’s birth.

Ring, sweet bells; oh, ring again!
Pealing out your gladsome strain!
Happy Christmas bells, peal on,
Ringing gladness everywhere.

2 Happy Christmas bells, your chiming
Wakens hopes bright with love;
Tenderly your music tells us
Of that sweet home above;
Hopefully we look to that sweet home,
Far removed from care and sin,
Longing for the bells of Heav’n to ring
A sweeter Christmas in. [Refrain]
