Lyrics

Kind Christmas comes but once a year,
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
And with it brings right hearty cheer;
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
For years ago upon this morn
Our Savior as a child was born.
Ring merrily, bells,
Ring merrily, bells,
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!

To shepherds in those days of old
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
A heavenly band the glad news told,
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
In Bethlehem is born this day
He who will wash all sin away,
Ring merrily, bells,
Ring merrily, bells,
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!

This newborn Babe to children brings
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
A message from the King of Kings,
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
Peace and goodwill, goodwill and peace
And on this earth may love increase,
Ring merrily, bells…

So in the future as the past,
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
It will be while this world shall last,
Ring merrily, bells ding dong!
That Christmas coming once a year,
Brings peace and love and right good cheer,
Ring merrily, bells…
