Ring the bells of Christmas morn,
Tell the world a king is born;
He, the Saviour promised long,
Come and hail Him with a song.
Wake your harps, ye angels bright;
Sing aloud, ye hosts of light;
Sing, as on that holy night,
Glory in the Highest!

Ring the bells of Christmas day,
Waft the story far away;
Thro'the air, the earth, the sea,
Christ has come our life to be.

Ring the bells of love and peace,
Rings the bells till time shall cease;
Lo, He comes with us to dwell,
Christ the Lord, Immanuel.
