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 the 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 Ding, dong, ding, ding...... dong! TRIVIA: "Carol of the Bells" (aka "Ukrainian Bell Carol") was adapted from the Ukrainian folk song "Shchedryk" by Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych in 1916. Peter Wilhousky added the English language lyrics in 1936.
