1 Ring, merry, merry bells,
The Christmas morn!
Ring out a joyous peal!
The Savior comes,
The Christ is born!
He comes to save and heal.

2 Ring, merry, merry bells,
O’er all the land,
By hall and cottage fires—
Let every home
And household band
Hear music from your spires.

3 Ring, merry, merry bells!
There cometh here
The wondrous Truth, at last;
By ancient king
And kingly seer,
So longed for, ages past.

4 Ring, merry, merry bells!
Let hill and vale,
Through all the festal day—
In notes of joy
Repeat the tale
Of Christ, the Living Way.

5 Ring, merry, merry bells!
Our heavy load
We lay, rejoicing, down;
For by His cross
We gain the road
To our eternal crown.

6 Ring, merry, merry bells!
Your carols pour—
Nor let your gladness cease;
The Wonderful!
The Counselor!
The mighty Prince of Peace!
