Representative Text

1 Ring out, glad bells, in your merry strain,
Jesus is born in Bethlehem;
Ring long and loud to the glad refrain,
Jesus the Saviour’s born.
Let all the hills and the plains rejoice,
Woodland and meadow the echo voice,
Each in the glad notes of joy profound,
Jesus the Saviour’s born.

Ring out glad bells
Loudly proclaim,
Jesus has come,
Good news he brings,
Tell it abroad,
O’er hill and plain,
From Bethlehem,
Comes Jesus our Saviour and King.

2 Ring out, glad bells, in your sweetest chime,
Prophecies true of the olden time;
Ring to the uttermost of Earth’s clime,
Jesus the Saviour’s born.
Let all the valleys the chorus swell,
Hast’ning the glad, good news to tell,
Filling the earth with the happy sound,
Jesus the Saviour’s born. [Refrain]

3 Ring out, glad bells, all the story tell,
Jesus has come to earth to dwell;
Tell it at even, at morn, at noon,
Jesus the Saviour’s born.
Let every heart beat in praise to him
Who brings sweet peace and good will to men,
While angels chant it in hymns above,
Jesus the Saviour’s born. [Refrain]
