1 Hark the bells! Hark the bells!
Hear the merry Christmas bells!
As they ring through all the earth,
Telling of the Saviour’s birth.
Happy morn! happy morn!
Lo the Prince of Peace is born!
Tell the story, Christ of glory,
Comes to reign! comes to reign!
Hark the angels are singing;
Alleluias are ringing;
Peace to men upon earth
And good will,” they loud proclaim!

Refrain:
Hark the bells! Hark the bells!
Hear the merry Christmas bells!
As they ring through all the earth,
Telling of the Savior’s birth.
Happy morn! happy morn!
Lo the Prince of Peace is born!
Tell the story, Christ of glory,
Comes to reign! comes to reign!

2 Wond’rous star! wond’rous star!
Guiding wise-men from afar;
O’er the desert plains they come,
Seeking David’s Royal Son;
Low they bow! low they bow!
At the manger cradle now;
Gifts of gold and precious treasure
Offer Him! offer Him!
Christmas bells are sweetly ringing,
Children, carols are singing;
Heaven and earth Alleluias
Raise to Christ the new-born King! [Refrain]

3 Holy Child! Holy Child!
Babe of Bethlehem so mild!
Come to us anew today,
Keep us in the perfect way.
Lord of all! Lord of all!
At Thy feet we humbly fall!
Here we worship and adore Thee,
Christ our King! Christ our King!
Open wide now the portals
Of your hearts, all ye mortals;
Let Him in! let Him in!
Let the Christ-child enter in! [Refrain]
