I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day

I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Johnny Marks)

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men

I thought how as the day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth, I said
For hate s strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead nor doth he sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men
