1. Come away, the bells are calling,
Merry bells of Christmas time;
Youthful hearts again are bounding
While we catch their tuneful chime.

Refrain
Merry, merry bells, merry, merry bells,
Listen to their carol and the joy it tells;
Ringing far and near, ringing sweet and clear,
O the blessèd music of the old-time bells.

2. Come away, they still are calling,
While, to crown our festal scene,
Busy fingers now are twining
Wreaths of holly bright and green. [Refrain]

3. Come away, our faith is calling,
And we look with loving eyes
On a lowly manger cradle
Where the infant Savior lies. [Refrain]

4. Come away, our souls are calling,
While the bells responsive ring;
Hallelujah in the highest
To the Lord’s anointed king. [Refrain]
