Ring, Christmas bells,
merrily ring,
Tell all the world
Jesus is King.

Loudly proclaim,
With one accord,
The happy tale,
Welcome the Lord!

Ring, Christmas bells,
Sound far and near,
The birthday of Jesus is here.

Herald the news,
To old and young,
Tell it to all,
In ev'ry tongue.

Ring, Christmas bells,
Toll loud and long,
Your message sweet,
Peel and prolong.

Come all ye people,
Join in the singing,
Repeat the story,
Told by the ringing.

Ring, Christmas bells,
Tell the glad news
Of Jesus birth.

Loudly proclaim,
With one accord,
The happy tale,
Welcome the Lord!

Ring, Christmas bells,
Merrily ring,
Tell all the world,
Jesus is King!
