1 Angels rejoiced and sweetly sung
At our Redeemer's birth;
Mortals, awake! let every tongue
Proclaim his matchless worth.

Refrain:
Ring the merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas bells;
Chime on,
Chime on,
Glory, glory, glory, glory be to God who dwells on high;
Good will to men, ye fallen race,
Arise, and shout for joy.

2 Glory to God, who dwells on high,
And sent his only Son
To take a servant's form, and die
For evils we have done. [Refrain]

3 Good-will to men; ye fallen race!
Arise, and shout for joy;
He comes, with rich, abounding grace,
To save, and not destroy. [Refrain]

4 Lord, send the gracious tidings forth,
And fill the world with light;
That Jew and Gentile, through the earth,
May know thy saving might. [Refrain]
