1 List! list to the chime of the Christmas bells,
The Christmas bells, the Christmas bells,
Sounding abroad the sweet welcome strains,
The welcome strains,
Peace ever more load the tidings prolong,
O'er land and o'er sea, comes the glad new song,
O'er land and o'er sea, comes the glad new song.

2 Oh, merrily, merrily chiming today,
Yes, chiming today, yes, chiming today,
Cheering all hearts with your joyful lay,
Your joyful lay;
Softly, sweet bells, tell the story we love,
There's joy on the earth, and there's joy above.
There's joy on the earth, and there's joy above.

3 Thy silvery music is wafted afar,
Is wafted afar, is, wafted afar,
As thousands are hailing the Morning Star,
The Morning Star;
Beautiful Star! let thy glorious ray,
Illume all the earth with thy praise today,
Illume all the earth with thy praise today.
