1 Ring, ye happy Christmas bells,
Ring the precious story:
Christ was born in Bethlehem,
Christ the King of glory.

Refrain:
Ring, bells, ring! Christ is King,
Christ is born in Bethlehem,
Christ, the King of Glory.

2 Little children, come and learn,
Learn the sweet old story:
Once the Christ a child like you,
Now is King of glory. [Refrain]

3 Stars and angels sang aloud,
Peace on earth and glory,
To the God who from above,
Sent this wondrous story. [Refrain]

4 Stars and angels sing again,
Sing the gladsome story,
Answer to the joyous bells,
Christ is King of glory. [Refrain]
