1 The bells of heav’n are ringing,
Are telling of the King;
Who came salvation bringing,
And healing in his wing.
He came to life oppression,
To banish sin and wrong;
He came our light to scatter night,
And give to earth a song.
Ring, ring, ring,
O ring, ye bells, ye merry bells,
O Ring, ring, ring,
O ring ye bells, ye merry bells,
O ring, ring, ring, ye Christmas bells, ring, ring,
Ring, O ring ye bells, ye merry bells.
2 O ring, ye bells of heaven,
Reecho loud and long;
Let unto men be given,
A new and happy song.
O ring aloud in gladness,
Let heav’nly joy be known;
O earth awake this joy partake,
Claim Jesus as your own. [Refrain]
3 O ring, ye bells of heaven,
Upon this day of cheer;
O ring the glorious tidings,
For Christ the King is here.
Reecho o’er the hilltops,
The Saviour dear comes hearts to cheer,
His kingdom earth may share. [Refrain]
