    "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" Lyrics

    Ricky Van Shelton

    I heard the bells on Christmas day
    Their old familiar carols play
    And mild 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 roll'd along th' unbroken song
    Of peace on earth, good will to men.

    --- Instrumental ---

    And in despair I bow'd 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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    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...
