1. Joy is in our message!
Peal the Christmas Bells!
Joy, great joy re-echoes
From the glory
In the story
Which our chimes are telling,
As the music swells;
Ringing, ringing, new joy bringing,
Peal the Christmas bells.

Chorus.
To ev'ry land in anthem grand,
From the northern icy tow'rs
To the sunset land of flow'rs;
O'er ev'ry sea,
To the bond and free,
We repeat the song of angel throng;
The Saviour now is ours!

2. Peace we softly echo
In our silv'ry chime,
O'er the world's great midnight
Softly stealing
Sweetly pealing,
Glorious news we're bringing
At the Christmas time!
Now increasing, never ceasing,
In our song sublime. Chorus.

3. Now good will we're sounding
In a mighty strain!
Like the angel chorus
From the glory
With the story,
Sung that Christmas morning
Over Bethle'm's plain;
Swelling, sounding, still resounding,
As we peal again. Chorus.
