1 Hark! the merry, merry bells,
Christmas chimes are ringing;
Each the same glad story tells,
Angel hosts were singing.
When on far Judea’s plain,
Shepherds heard their sweet refrain,
From the welkin ringing,
From the welkin ringing.

2 Peace on earth, good will to men,
Tidings glad they’re telling;
Blessèd Christmas come again,
On the air is swelling.
Now let notes of praise ascend,
Voices altogether blend,
Joy fill every dwelling,
Joy fill every dwelling.

3 Christ is born, the Prince of Peace,
Bells are now repeating;
Let all strife and discord cease,
Give all kindly greeting.
Let this day of Jesus’ birth
Bind together hearts on earth,
Time is all too fleeting,
Time is all too fleeting.
