Ring on, ye joyous Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
What tale of love your music tells,
Ring on! Ring on!
The Christ is born for sinful men;
’Tis Christmas morn,
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring on, ye joyous Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
What tale of love your music tells,
Ring on! Ring on!

Ring on, O merry Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
What peace from out your clangor wells,
Ring on! Ring on!
Peace comes to earth; Good will to men,
A priceless birth.
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring on, O merry Christmas bells,
Ring on! Ring on!
What peace from out your clangor wells,
Ring on! Ring on!

Ring on, ye happy Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
With holy joy the clamor swells,
Ring on! Ring on!
Oh, happy day for weary men;
Oh, royal day,
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring on, ye happy Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
With holy joy the clamor swells,
Ring on! Ring on!

Ring on, ye holy Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
O’er hill and dale, through wildest dells,
Ring on! Ring on!
In triumph ring for holy men
All gladness bring,
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring on, ye holy Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
O’er hill and dale, through wildest dells
Ring on! Ring on!

Ring on, ye gladsome Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
’Tis mercy mild the sound foretells,
Ring on! Ring on!
The Prince of Peace now pleads for men;
He will not cease,
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring on, ye gladsome Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
’Tis mercy mild the sound foretells,
Ring on! Ring on!

Ring on, ye peaceful Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
Tell of the hope that in us dwells,
Ring on! Ring on!
To Jesus now all ranks of men
In worship bow,
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring out again! Ring out again!
Ring on, ye peaceful Christmas bells!
Ring on! Ring on!
Tell of the hope that in us dwells,
Ring on! Ring on!
