1 Carol, sweetly carol,
A Saviour born today;
Bear the joyful tidings,
Oh, bear them far away:
Carol, sweetly carol,
Till earth’s remotest bound
Shall hear the mighty chorus,
And echo back the sound.

2 Carol, sweetly carol,
As when the angel throng
O’er the vales of Judah
Awoke the heavenly song:
Carol, sweetly carol,
Goodwill, and peace, and love,
“Glory in the highest
To God Who reigns above.!”

3 Carol, sweetly carol,
The happy Christmas time:
Hark! the bells are pealing
Their merry, merry chime:
Carol, sweetly carol
Ye shining ones above,
Sing in loudest numbers
Oh, sing redeeming love.
