1. Ring out, O bells, your
O ring, and do not cease;
For in a manger, far away,
Is born the Prince of Peace.
Ring on, ye bells, O sweetly ring,
While we with happy voices sing!
Ring on, ring on,
Ring on, ye bells,
O sweetly ring, sweetly ring!
2. The shepherds, far on
Who guard their flocks by night,
See in the heav'n a shining star,
With wondrous glory bright. Chorus
3. This was the star that
hailed the birth
Of Jesus Christ the Lord;
The Son and Type of Righteousness,
Whom angels fair adored. Chorus
4. Now let us join, with one
And joyful be our praise;
Ring out, O bells, and sweetly chime
Your merry Christmas lays! Chorus
