1. Ring out, sweet bells, your Christmas chime,
Your chime of welcome, clear and brave;
This night there came with us to dwell
Our Jesus, came to dwell and save.
Ring out, sweet bells,
Ring out sweet bells,
Our Jesus came to dwell and save.

2. A babe, in rustic manger laid,
And lowly guise our Saviour came;
"Emanuel" of prophets told,
"The Holy Babe of Bethlehem."
Ring out, sweet bells,
Ring out sweet bells,
"The Holy Babe of Bethlehem."

3. Ring out, sweet bells, ring out, ring out,
To every creature glad, forlorn,
The message of "Good-will to man,"
And "Peace on earth" with Jesus born.
Ring out, sweet bells,
Ring out sweet bells,
"Good-will" and "Peace" with Jesus born.
