Once Again The Christmas Bells

Once again the Christmas bells have brought us
Tidings of good will and peace;
Once again the angel lips have taught us
Music that shall never cease.
Over all the world the song is sounding,
Ringing in the happy morn-
“Glory!glory! Christ the Lord is born.”

Night of joy, when the star shone out above,
Night of joy when the world received that gift of love;
Oh, night of joy! and triumphant golden morn;
Glory! glory! Christ the Lord is born.

Many years have passed since first the story
Echoed over Bethlehem’s plain;
Still we see the star in all its glory,
Still we hear the sweet refrain.
Ev’rywhere we find glad voices singing
Welcome to His natal morn-
“Glory!glory! Christ the Lord is born.” [Refrain]
