1 Ring out, O bells, your peals today,
O ring, and do not cease;
For in a manger, far away,
Is born the Prince of Peace.

Refrain:
Ring on, ye bells, O sweetly ring,
While we with happy voices sing!
Ring on, ring on, ring on, ye bells,
O sweetly ring, sweetly ring!

2 The shepherds, far on Bethl’hem’s plain,
Who guard their flocks by night,
See in the heav’n a shining star,
With wondrous glory bright. [Refrain]

3 This was the star that hailed the birth
Of Jesus Christ the Lord;
The Son and type of righteousness,
Whom angels fair adored. [Refrain]

4 Now let us join, with one accord,
And joyful be our praise;
Ring out, O bells, and sweetly chime
Your merry Christmas lays! [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
