Wednesday 14 December - Carol of the Bells (Mykola Leontovych)

CD Cover

Sung by Straight No Chaser.

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 everywhere
Filling the air.

O, how they pound,
Raising the sound
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale.

Gaily 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 every home.

Ding, dong, ding, dong.
