Hear the Bells

Jim Melko

                     

In the hush of the morning, while daylight is forming

On Christmas Day

The forest is quiet, the fields are silent

Then far away

Hear them ring, hear them sing

Dulcet tones rejoicing

Hear them call, inviting all

To welcome Christ our King

 

            Hear the bells, hear the bells

Each voice is proclaiming the birth of our Lord

Hear the bells, hear the bells

A new King is reigning, our hope is reborn

Hear the bells, hear the bells, hear the bells!

The bells on Christmas Day

 

A crystalline chorus, they sing to assure us

That on this day

God’s only Son, Jesus, was sent here to lead us

To faith and grace

Hear them ring, hear them sing

Dulcet tones rejoicing

Hear them call, inviting all

To welcome Christ our King
