Representative Text

1 Farewell, farewell, Christmas morn,
Day the Prince of Peace was born,
Day that brings to earth good-cheer,
Brightest day of all the year.

Ringing, ringing, swinging through the air,
Ringing, ringing, swinging everywhere,
Bells ring out the Christmas joy,
And God’s praise our tongues employ,
Bells ring out, sweet bells ring out the Christmas joy.

2 “Peace on earth, good-will to men,”
Echo through the world again,
And how Christ the Saviour came,
All His children now proclaim. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, “King of Israel,”
Jesus, “Our Immanuel,”
May Thy Spirit be our guide,
And may we in Thee abide. [Refrain]
