Eddy Arnold – I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day lyrics

(Henry W. Longfellow - John B. Calkin)
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
I thought as now this day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
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, goodwill to men.
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead nor doth he sleeps
The wrong shall fail the right prevail
With peace on earth, goodwill to men...
