Little child­ren, come and learn,
Learn the sweet old sto­ry;
Christ was once a child like you,
Now is King of glo­ry.


Ring, bells ring, Christ is King,
Christ is King of glo­ry;
Christ was born in Beth­le­hem,
Christ, the King of glo­ry.

Stars and an­gels sang aloud,
Peace on earth, and glo­ry
To the God who from above
Sent this won­drous sto­ry.


Stars and an­gels sing again,
Tell the glad­some sto­ry!
Answer to the joy­ous bells,
Christ is King of glo­ry.
