The Singing Bells
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.
