Lyrics:
I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day

Writer(s):  Edward B. Marks / Henry Wordsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day, their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat of peace on earth, good will to men.
I thought how, as the day had come, the belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th' unbroken song of peace on earth, good will to men.
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."
Then pealed 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."
Till 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.
