Representative Text

1 O’er the earth a happy song is ringing,
Far and wide the music swells;
Joy and gladness unto all ’tis bringing;
Sweet the music of the bells.

Ring, sweet bells, ring sweet bells,
Chime in gladness, banish sadness;
Ring, sweet bells, ring sweet bells!
Tell of the Savior born.

2 Join the chorus, happy hearts and voices,
Welcome in this blessèd morn;
’Tis the day when all the world rejoices;
Christ in Bethlehem is born. [Refrain]

3 Angel voices chant the Christmas story,
Joining in the glad refrain,
Singing "Glory in the highest, glory,
Peace on earth, good will to men." [Refrain]
