Carol of the Bells

(Traditional – Composed: Mykola Leontovych / Words: Peter Wilhousky / Arranged by Hiroaki Kato)

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

Oh 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
