Joulun kellot

Lyrics - Finnish

(Folk song from Finland)

Hiljaa, hiljaa joulun kellot kajahtaa
Kautta avaruuksien kaikuu laulu riemuiten:
Jeesus tullut on!

Hiljaa, hiljaa joulun kellot kajahtaa
Taivahalla säteillen välkkyy sarja tähtösten:
Jeesus tullut on!

Hiljaa, hiljaa joulun kellot kajahtaa
Kirkkaat joulukynttilät lempeästi hymyvät:
Jeesus tullut on!

Hiljaa, hiljaa joulun kellot kajahtaa
Kaikuu laulu lapsosten kirkkahasti helkkyen:
Joulu tullut on!

English Translation – Christmas bells

Quietly, quietly the Christmas bells are ringing
Through space, the song echoes with joy:
Jesus has come!

Quietly, quietly the Christmas bells are ringing
A series of constellations flash in the sky:
Jesus has come!

Quietly, quietly the Christmas bells are ringing
Bright Christmas candles with a gentle smile:
Jesus has come!

Quietly, quietly the Christmas bells are ringing
The song echoes in the brightness of the children:
Christmas has come!

  1. I’m so glad I stumbled upon your site; it looks fascinating! A Finnish woman I follow on Instagram included a snippet of this song in one of her stories today. I loved it and felt compelled to find out more about it. She told me she sang the song when she was a little girl.
