1. Christian people, come and sing,
Hope and joy receiving!
Tell of Him who is our King,
Still His words are living!
Proud or humble, rich or poor,
Christmas opens wide your door.
From each heart its blessings pour,
The joy of joys is giving!
O Christmas Bells, Ring On!

2. Yes, come forth, and joyful be
Cares of life unheeding;
Faith and Love, with Charity,
Be not deaf to pleading!
May all erring hearts of men
Turn to peace and love again!
Christmas doth not come in vain,
For Christ is ever leading!
O Christmas Bells, Ring On!

3. Christian people, sing ye now,
Earnest voices raising,
Sing good-will to earth  below,
Which like heav'n is praising!
Proud or humble, rich or poor,
Christmas opens wide your door,
From each hear its blessings pour,
The joy of joys is giving!
O Christmas Bells, Ring On!
