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

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

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

4 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.""

5 Then ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day -
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, good-will to men.
