Verse 1
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men
Chorus 1
And the bells are ringing
In my heart I hear them
Like a choir they're singing
Peace on earth, good will to men
Verse 2
And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men
Chorus 2
But the bells are ringing
Like a choir singing
Does anybody hear them?
Peace on earth, good will to men
Bridge
Then rang the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men
Verse 3
Then ringing singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men
(Repeat Chorus 2)
Chorus 3
Do you hear the bells they're ringing?
The life the angels singing
Open up your heart and hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men
