Christmas Songs – Carol Of The Bells lyrics

Hark! how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say,
"Throw cares away."
Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong
That is their song
With joyful ring
All caroling
One seems to hear
Words of good cheer

From ev'rywhere
Filling the air

Oh how they pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale,
Joyf'ly they ring
While people sing
Songs of good cheer
Christmas is here
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas

On, on they send
On without end
Their joyful tone
To ev'ry home

[Repeat from the beginning]

Ding, dong, ding, dong

    American: when peter wilhousky first heard the song in the 1930's it reminded him of bells which is how the song got its background. The other parts are about how christmas song's spread good cheer and make everyone happy and loved.
    Ukrainian: the original song (shchedryk) by mykola leontovych is not about christmas at all. Its meaning is centered around new year's. The song is about spring being close and how everyone hopes they will have a good year and enough food.

    The music itself carries us to a place of hope and joy, anticipation, expectation, finally declaration. The ordinary and empty is interrupted with the meaningful. Christmas rings perfectly with this message: good news to all of truth enduring, lifting us to what is and has been and will be. Our hearts peal out the message, we join the eternal song. We hare loved and important, tell everyone who will listen. We have been visited by a Person, Love beyond telling, who will come again this time to stay among us. Our most cherished hopes will be realized. It's just beyond the horizon. Remember, be glad, be strong: Sing on until it is heard and owned by every listening heart- peace on Earth, good will to men.
