203. Ring Out the News

1 Sweet bells ring on your Christmas song,
The old, old story telling,
Of angels bright on plains of light,
And heav'nly chorus swelling.

Chorus:
Ring on, ring on,
ye blessed Christmas bells ring on,
Spread forth the news that Christ is born
On this sweet Christmas morn.

2 Ring "peace on earth, good-will to men,"
Dear Day-spring of salvation;
Ring near and far, o'er moor and fen,
Ring joy to ev'ry nation. [Chorus]

3 Ring Christ is born, on this sweet morn,
A babe in lowly manger;
While angel throng, with song up-borne,
Proclaim the newborn Stranger. [Chorus]

4 Ring out salvation full and free,
To ev'ry clime and nation,
Ring out the news to land and sea,
Glad tidings of salvation. [Chorus]
