1. Ye bells, ye bells, ye happy bells,
Ye bells of Christmas time.
Ring out, ring out, ring out again,
A wildly joyous chime;
For unto us a Child is born,
Our Hope and light to be;
The Wonderful, the Counselor,
The Prince of Peace is He.

Refrain
Ye bells, ye happy Christmas bells,
Ye bells of Christmas-tide.
Ring, ring, ring again
O'er earth afar and wide.
Ye bells, Ye happy bells,
Ye bells of Christmas tide.
Ring out, ring out, ye happy Christmas bells.

2. Ye bells, ye bells, ye happy bells,
Ye bells of Christmas day.
Ring out, ring out, ring out again,
A sweet and gladsome lay.
Our King shall reign in righteousness,
And rule in equity;
The wilderness and solitude
A fruitful field shall be. Refrain

3. Ye bells, ye bells, ye happy bells,
Ye bells of Christmas tide.
Ring out, ring out, ring out again,
O'er earth afar and wide.
The Saviour promised us of old,
The Rod of Jesse's stem,
Whom kings and prophets long'd to see
Is born in Bethlehem. Refrain
