Merry Christmas

Posted by Jon Sanders at 12:34 AM

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.


I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th'unbroken song
Of peace on earth, goodwill 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, goodwill to men.


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; goodwill to men.
