Bells Over Belfast lyrics

by The Irish Rovers

Well the Antrim hills that are dark and still and the snow is tumblin' down
This Christmas time there's hope again for all in Belfast Town
With love and understanding we'll find a better way
The gift of peace is ours now upon this Christmas day

Bells over Belfast
How merrily they play
Peace and joy be with you
On this Christmas day

Well the star of light, it filled the night, many years ago
When the Magi found the blessed Child who set our hearts aglow
And since that day of wonder will live forever more
We hail the newborn King of kings who opened the heavens' door

Bells over Belfast
How merrily they play
Peace and joy be with you
On this Christmas day

It's a rocky road that leads to peace and a road that's hard to find
And them that never look for it, they're deaf and dumb and blind
People have their customs, religion and their laws
But we can stand together now, united in one cause

Bells over Belfast
How merrily they play
Peace and joy be with you
On this Christmas day

We'll dance and sing the new year in a share a cup of cheer
And drink to health and happiness throughout the coming year
We'll put our differences aside, our troubles all behind
And take a cup of kindness yet for days of Auld Lang Syne

Bells over Belfast
How merrily they play
Peace and joy be with you
On this Christmas day

Bells over Belfast
How merrily they play
Peace and joy be with you
On this Christmas day

Peace, please...
