1 The Christmas bells are ringing,
Yes, ringing everywhere,
And joyful hearts are singing,
Their voices fill their air;
The Christmas bells are telling
To you a Savior’s born!
And loud their tones are swelling,
On this glad, happy morn.

Refrain:
The Christmas bells are ringing,
There’s music in the air;
The Christmas bells are ringing,
Yes, ringing everywhere.

2 The Christmas bells are pealing
To all men peace, good will;
Like gentle voices stealing
I hear their music still;
Yes, ’tis the same sweet story
Was heard in days of old,
When Christ the Lord of glory
The wise men did behold. [Refrain]

3 The Christmas bells are bringing
A joyful melody,
And clearly, clearly ringing,
A song so glad and free;
Oh, list! their glorious echo
Is borne thro’ yonder sky,
While angels join the chorus
Of praise to God on high. [Refrain]
