1.
Ring, ye bells, a merry chime,
Ring the news to ev'ry clime,
On this glorious Christmas morn,
Christ our King, today was born.
Joyful be our songs today,
As we sing the angel's lay.
"Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna! in the Highest,"
Sing Hosannas, Loud proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

2.
Christmas bells are sounding clear,
Our bless'd Lord doth now appear;
In a lonely manger lies,
Lord of the earth and Pparadise.
Raise your voice in sweet accord,
Christ forever be adored!
"Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna! in the Highest,"
Sing Hosannas, Loud proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

3.
Ring out tones both loud and clear,
David's son doth now appear;
Angel choirs announce His birth,
Singing "Peace, good will on earth."
Loud responsive let us sing,
Glory to our Lord and King,
"Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna! in the Highest,"
Sing Hosannas, Loud proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

4.
Ring, Oh ring a merry chime,
Ring the news to ev'ry clime,
How the wise men from afar,
Follow'd Bethl'hem's radiant star:
Rais'd their voice in sweet accord,
Sang their praises to the Lord,
"Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna! in the Highest,"
Sing Hosannas, Loud proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
