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.

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]
