I heard the bells on Christmas Day
And wild and sweet the words repeat

The belfries of all Christendom
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.
And in despair I bowed my head
For hate is strong that mocks the song

God is not dead, nor doubt he sleeps
With peace on earth goodwill to men.
'Til ringin' singin' on its way
A voice, a chime, a chance so blind,

God is not dead nor doubt he sleeps
With peace on earth goodwill to men.
