Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
Ring out, O bells, your peals today,
O ring, and do not cease;
For in a manger, far away,
Is born the Prince of Peace.
Ring on, ye bells, O sweetly ring,
While we with happy voices sing!
Ring on, ring on, ring on, ye bells,
O sweetly ring, sweetly ring!
The shepherds, far on Bethl’hem’s plain,
Who guard their flocks by night,
See in the heav’n a shining star,
With wondrous glory bright.
This was the star that hailed the birth
Of Jesus Christ the Lord;
The Son and type of righteousness,
Whom angels fair adored.
Now let us join, with one accord,
And joyful be our praise;
Ring out, O bells, and sweetly chime
Your merry Christmas lays!
