(Melody by George Y. Hume, publ. 1924, Lyrics by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1809-1892)
Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light,
The year is dying in the night,
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring happy bells across the snow,
The year is dying, let him go,
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
