I heard the bells on Christmas day 

Their old familiar carols play 

And mild and sweet the words repeat, 
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

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

And in despair I bow'd 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."

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

'Til ringing, singing on its way, 
The world revolved from night to day, 
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime, 
Of peace on earth, good will to men! 

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
