1 The merry bells for us they ring,
For us they ring, for us they ring;
A message of great joy they bring,
Great joy they bring, great joy they bring;
They tell of Christ the little child,
Of peace, goodwill and mercy mild;
They ring o’er earth a sweet refrain,
Glad Christmas comes again.

Refrain:
They ring, they ring a sweet refrain,
Glad Christmas comes again.

2 Those dear to us with joy we greet,
With joy we greet, with joy we greet;
Round festive board old friends we meet,
Old friends we meet, old friends we meet;
With harmless jest and faces bright,
Without a care, with hearts so light,
We’ll banish sorrow and all pain;
Glad Christmas comes again. [Refrain]

3 O happy day when Christ was born,
When Christ was born, when Christ was born;
The best of days is this glad morn,
Is this glad morn, is this glad morn;
To men there comes sweet joy and peace,
The dawn of life which shall not cease;
Oh bells, ring out the heav’nly strain,
Glad Christmas comes again. [Refrain]
