Representative Text

1 Ring out, chiming bells of the morning,
Your story of light and of love,
Tell unto the earth of a Savior
Descended from heaven above.

Joy, joy,
Christ has come from glory,
Joy, joy,
Let the chorus ring,
Sing, sing,
Sing aloud His praises!
Let the earth receive her King.

2 Ring out, chiming bells of the morning,
The birthday of Jesus is here,
His coming fills earth with rejoicing,
And scatters each sorrow and fear. [Refrain]

3 Ring out, chiming bells of the morning,
Ring out with a joyous refrain,
O’er hearts that await to receive Him,
The Savior is coming again. [Refrain]
