1. What do they say, these bells to me,
Ringing away so merrily,
Wafting their notes of holy glee?
Jesus the Christ is born!

Chorus:
What do they say, these bells to me
Ringing away so merrily,
Wafting their notes of holy glee?
Jesus the Christ is born!

2. Out in the fields the shepherds lay
There shown around a glorious ray:
What did they hear the angels say?
Jesus the Christ is born! Chorus

 3. Over the hills, across the sea,
Peace and good-will to men shall be;
Sound out the news, sing joyfully
Jesus the Christ is born! Chorus
