1. Merry, merry chiming bells,
Clear and sweet their carol swells,
Joyful news their music tells,
Glory in the highest:

Glory be to God on high,
Glory in the highest.

2. In a manger far away,
Once the infant Savior lay;
We will sing His birth today,
Glory in the highest: [Refrain]

3. Let the glorious tidings fly,
Angels sing, and earth reply;
Glory be to God on high!
Glory in the highest: [Refrain]
