Representative Text

1 Ring the Christmas bells again,
Joy and peace their notes proclaim;
Happiness to all mankind,
Blessèd hope in Jesus’ name.

Ring the bells, ring the bells,
Tell the story, old and true;
Ring the bells, ring the bells,
Tell the story, ever new.

2 Sing once more the angels’ song,
Raise again the heav’nly strain,
Let the world the glad news hear,
Peace on earth, good will to men. [Refrain]

3 Tell again the story old,
Old, yet ever new and sweet,
Many years has it been told,
Ages shall its joys repeat. [Refrai
