159. Christmastime

Ring Christmas bells,

ring them loud with a message bringing

peace on the earth, tidings of good cheer!

Come, carolers, come and join with the angels singing,

`Joy to the World!` Christmastime is here!

 

Children, gather around and listen.

You´ll hear the sound of angels

Filling the sky

Telling everyone Christmastime is here!

 

Ring christmas bells, ring them loud with a message bringing

peace on the earth, tidings of good cheer!

Come, carolers, come and join with the angels singing,

`Joy to the World!` Christmastime is here!

 

Loved ones close to out hearts and strangers

In lands afar together sharing the joy

Emmanuel, go tell the world!

He has come to dwell! The time is here

With one voice, let the world rejoice!

 

Ring christmas bells, ring them loud with a message bringing

(Angels we have heard on high)

peace on the earth, Tidings of good cheer!

(sweetly singing o´er the plains)

Come, carolers, come and join with the angels singing,

(and the mountains in reply)

`Joy to the World!` Christmastime is here!

(echo back their joyous strains.)

 

Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Gloria in excelsis Deo!

 

Ring Christmas bells, ring them loud

With a message bringing peace on the earth,

Tidings of good cheer

Come carolers, come and join with the angels singing,

`Joy to the World` Christmastime is here!

Sing gloria, gloria in excelsis Deo!

Sing gloria in excelsis Deo!
