1. Oíer hill and dell
The Christmas bell
Is ringing far and wide;
Let all rejoice,
With cheerful voice,
And peace on earth abide.
For Christ is born
This happy morn,
Hark! Hark! the Angels sing;
Good will and love,
From Heavín above,
To all mankind they bring.

2. With holy mirth,
To greet His birth,
Draw nigh that Infantís bed;
Be not afraid,
For He is laid
Within a lowly shed.
There bend the knee,
For this is He,
Of Davidís royal line,
Who reigns alone
From manger-throne,
In Majesty Divine.

3. Nowel! Nowel!
Our song shall tell
To people yet unborn,
How Christ the King
Did gladness bring
Upon this happy morn.
The gloom departs
From faithful hearts,
For lo! the Lord is here.
Come one and all,
Before Him fall,
That Blessed Babe revere.
