1 What a shout was heard in the realms of light,
When peace and truth, descending,
With a marshal'd host in their robes of white,
Sang praise to God on high!
O shout again, ye sons of men,
Sing praise to God above.
Till the utmost bounds of the world shall wake
One mighty song of love.

Refrain:
Ring on, ye bells, ye chiming bells,
Your tuneful measure swelling;
Ring on, ye bells, ye chiming bells,
The grand old story telling.
What a shout was heard in the realms of light,
When peace and truth, descending,
With a marshal'd host in their robes of white,
Sang praise to God on high!

2 There was joy, great joy— ‘twas a glorious sight,
the shepherds gazed in wonder,
When the earth was filled with a splendor bright,
From God’s eternal home.
Great joy today, O let it ring
As on that sacred morn,
When the angel band in a far-off land
Proclaimed the Saviour born. [Refrain]
