1 Chime the bells! lift high your voices!
Bring rich gifts, for well you may!
All mankind this day rejoices—
Mary’s Son was born today!

Refrain:
Sweep your harps, you host forgiven!
Night gave way to breaking morn;
Swinging gates gave glimpse of Heaven
On that day the Christ was born.

2 Let our songs abound in gladness,
let our homes be bright and gay!
Let all hearts forget their sadness—
Christ the Lord was born today! [Refrain]

3 Let our songs in vast assembly,
Worship God for gift so great;
Babe today, but years of manhood
Made His cross our best estate! [Refrain]
