I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild, and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men

I thought as now this day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled so long th' unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men
(Peace on earth, good will to men)

And in despair I bowed my head
"There is no peace on earth", I said
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men"

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
"God is not dead nor doth, He sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men"
