Lyrics

I Heard The Bells
(from "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," Henry Wadsworth Longfellow" 1861)
setting and additional material by Sarah Motes Ashley 2016

V1
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

V2
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!'

Chorus

But I will
be still and know that He is God
and someday I will see His face
He sent His Son
to help me understand
His all-consuming grace

V3
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead, nor does He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men

Chorus

I heard the bells (be still and know)
I heard the bells (be still and know)
I heard the bells (be still and know)
on Christmas Day
