1. Voices of the belfry height, pealing forth your merry chimes.
Sound upon the winter night, melodies of Christmastime.
As of old, the yule log bring, bind the holly round the hall.
At the gate the minstrels sing messages of peace to all.
Voices of the belfry height, pealing forth your merry chimes,
Sound upon the winter night melodies of Christmas times,
Melodies of Christmas times.
2. Voices of the Christmas day, may your echoes never cease,
As the seasons pass away, heralding a world’s increase.
Through the mysteries of years, stands alone the truth divine,
Through the clouds of darkest fears, Starlight, will it never shine. Refrain
