1. Joy is in our message!
Peal the Christmas bells!
Joy, great joy re-echoes
From the glory in the story
Which our chimes are telling,
As the music swells;
Ringing, ringing, new joy bringing,
Peal the Christmas bells.

To every land in anthem grand,
From the northern icy tow’rs
To the sunset land of flow’rs;
O’er every sea, to the bond and free,
We repeat the song of angel throng;
The Savior now is ours!

2. Peace we softly echo
In our silvery chime,
O’er the world’s great midnight
Softly stealing, sweetly pealing,
Glorious news we’re bringing
At the Christmas time!
Now increasing, never ceasing,
In our song sublime. [Refrain]

3. Now good will we’re sounding,
In a mighty strain!
Like the angel chorus
From the glory with the story,
Sung that Christmas morning
Over Bethle’em’s plain;
Swelling, sounding, still resounding,
As we peal again. [Refrain]
