I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas Day their old familiar carols play

And wild and sweet the words repeat of peace on earth goodwill to men

I thought how as the day had come the belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along unbroken song of peace on earth goodwill to men

And in despair I bowed my head there is no peace on earth I said

For hate is strong that mocks the song of peace on earth goodwill to men

(Then pealed the bells more loud and deep God is not dead nor doubt he sleeps

The wrong shall fail the right prevail with peace on earth goodwill to men)

Till ringin’ singin’ on its way the world revolve from night to day

A voice a chime a chance so blind on earth goodwill to men

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep God is not dead nor doubt he sleeps

The wrong shall fail the right prevail with peace on earth goodwill to men
