Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells
All seem to say, throw cares away.
Christmas is here, bringing good cheer
To young and old, meek and the bold.
Ding-dong, ding-dong, that is the song
With joyful ring, all caroling.
One seems to hear words of good cheer
From everywhere, filling the air.
Oh, how they pound, raising their sound
O'er hill and dale, telling their tale.
Gaily they ring, while people sing
Songs of good cheer, Christmas is here.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.
On on they send, on without end
Their joyful tone to every home.
