1. Ring out, ring out, a joyful peal
From Every tower and steeple,
Tell far and near the glorious news,
Glad tidings to all people.
That on this holy festal morn,
The Saviour of mankind was born!
That on this holy festal morn,
The Saviour of mankind was born!
That on this holy festal morn,
The Saviour of mankind was born!

2. To shepherds, who on Judah's plains
By night their watch were keeping,
The glory of the Lord appeared
While all around were sleeping;
They first the Angels message heard,
They first went forth to see their Lord.
They first the Angels message heard,
They first went forth to see their Lord.
They first the Angels message heard,
They first went forth to see their Lord.

3. While sages from a distant land,
A star their footsteps leading,
Came seeking for the Holy Child,
No toil nor danger heeding;
They came, to pay their worship meet,
And lay their offerings at His feet.
They came, to pay their worship meet,
And lay their offerings at His feet.
They came, to pay their worship meet,
And lay their offerings at His feet.

4. To Him, then, let us also pay
Our grateful adoration,
Whose birth we celebrate today,
With songs of exultation;
Lift up our hearts with one accord
To Jesus, Our Incarnate Lord.
Lift up our hearts with one accord
To Jesus, Our Incarnate Lord.
Lift up our hearts with one accord
To Jesus, Our Incarnate Lord.
