If you know where to get a good pho­to of Mack (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


The bells of Heav’n are ringing,
Are telling of the King;
Who came sal­va­tion bringing
And healing in His wing.
He came to lift oppression,
To banish sin and wrong;
He came, our light, to scatter night,
And give to earth a song.


Ring, ring, ring,
O ring, ye bells, ye merry bells,
O ring, ring, ring,
O ring, ye bells, ye merry bells,
O ring, ring, ring,
Ye Christ­mas bells, ring, ring,
Ring, O ring ye bells, ye merry bells.

O ring, ye bells of Hea­ven,
Re-echo loud and long;
Let unto men be given
A new and happy song.
O ring aloud in gladness,
Let heavenly joy be known;
O earth, awake, this joy partake,
Claim Je­sus as your own.


O ring, ye bells of Hea­ven,
Upon this day of cheer;
O ring the glo­ri­ous tidings,
For Christ the King is here.
Re-echo o’er the hilltops,
Resounding ev­ery­where;
The Sav­ior dear comes hearts to cheer:
His kingdom earth may share.
