Christmas Songs – Ding Dong! Merrily On High lyrics
[Refrain:]
Ding dong! Merrily on high,
In heav'n the bells are ringing:
Ding dong! Verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel singing.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

E'en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And "Io, io, io!"
By priest and people sungen.

[Refrain]

Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers

    This is an Old English song about bell ringers in the church in the steeples as they swing from long ropes. Io, io, io is a call to the faithful. Matin chimes tell the time of day they are to be rung.
