Away, away! o’er the glistening snow,
With merry glee and with song we go;
With laugh and shout,
While bells ring out,
Hurrah, hurrah! for the winter’s night,
The snow so white,
And the moon so bright,
Hurrah, hurrah! For the winter’s night,
The snow so white,
And the moon so bright,
Ring the bells ring out.

Our steeds are fleet, and they lightly spring,
And countless gems from their pathways fling;
With merry song,
We glide along,
With speed of bird is our rapid flight,
With hearts as light,
And with eyes as bright;
With speed of bird is our rapid flight,
With hearts as light,
And with eyes as bright,
We glide along.

Hurrah, hurrah! for a steed that flies,
For rosy cheeks and for sparkling eyes,
For ringing bells,
And singing belles;
For health and joy our ride doth bring,
With bells that ring,
And with belles that sing;
For health and joy our ride doth bring,
With bells that ring,
And with belles that sing,
With belles that sing.
