Representative Text

1 Merry, merry bells are ringing
In silver chime,
Round the world again is winging,
That hallowed time;
When the Child of sacred story,
Came down to earth;
And the shining hosts of glory
Sang at His birth.

Refrain:
Merry, merry bells are ringing
In silver chime,
Round the world again is winging,
That hallowed time.

2 Merry, merry lips are singing
His praises now,
Grateful hearts their tribute bringing,
Before Him bow;
Countless homes His sweet peace sharing,
The holly twine,
And the sacred shrine is wearing
The palm and pine. [Refrain]

3 Merry, merry bells still ringing
In silver chime,
Round the world still winging, bringing,
Glad Christmas time;
Till the story of the manger
All nations tell,
And they crown the Child the Stranger
Emmanuel. [Refrain]
