Sing, O sing the blessed story

Representative Text

1 Sing, O sing the blessed story,
Christ the Lord is born in glory:
Christmas morn dark night dispels,
Ring o'er all the world the bells.

Chorus:
Ring, ring, happy Christmas bells,
O'er all the world your music swells;
Ring, ring on this blessed morn,
For Christ the Lord is born.
Sing, sing, glory be to God,
On earth goodwill and peace to men:
Glory be to God on high,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

2 Sing, O sing the blessed story,
Christ the Lord is born in glory:
We our glad hosannas sing,
Let the bells a chorus ring. [Chorus]

3 Sing, O sing the blessed story,
Christ the Lord is born in glory:
Born His people to redeem,
Ring ye bells the glorious theme. [Chorus]

4 Sing, O sing the blessed story,
Christ the Lord is born in glory:
Now is man from sin set free,
Ring ye bells o'er land and sea. [Chorus]
