Carol of the bells

"Carol of the bells" er en julesang som er komponeret af den ukrainske komponist Mykola Leontovych i 1914. Den ukrainske tekst kommer fra den ukrainske folkevise "Shchedryk". Den engelske tekst er skrevet af Peter Wilhousky.

Hark how the bells,
Sweet silver bells,
All seem to say,
Throw cares away

Christmas is here,
Bringing good cheer,
To young and old,
Meek and the bold.

Ding dong ding dong
That is their song
With joyful ring
All caroling.
One seems to hear

Words of good cheer
From everywhere
Filling the air.

Oh how they pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale.

Gaily they ring
While people sing
Songs of good cheer,
Christmas is here.

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.

On on they send,
On without end,
Their joyful tone
To every home.
