Carol Of The Bells lyrics

by Celtic Woman

Ding, dong, ding, dong, ding
Ding, dong, ding, dong, ding

Ding, dong, ding, dong, ding
Ding, dong, ding, dong, ding

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 carolling
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

[Instrumental]

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 carolling
One seems to hear
Words of good cheer
From everywhere
Filling the air

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, ding
Ding, dong, ding, dong, ding

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...

Ding, dong, ding, dong, bong!
