The Singing Bells

            of Christmas

I hear the bells this Christmas Eve,

Echoing God’s message in sweet refrain.

Precious carols fill the wintry air —

Let hearts rejoice, silver bells proclaim.

From the distance come soft tinklings

Of merry sleigh bells in the night,

Diamond icicles sway in jeweled festoons,

Sparkling in the glow of haloed light.

Silver stars spread a gleaming rainbow

Of glimmering, gold-spun light;

All the world seems filled with radiance,

So peaceful and still in the timeless night.

Chiming bells ring for each of us

God’s glorious blessings from Heaven above,

For Christmas is God’s wondrous miracle

That fills our hearts with eternal love.
