Above All The Roar Of The Cities

Above all the roar of the cities,

And over the hills and the dells,

With a message of peace to the nations,

Ring the beautiful Bethlehem bells,

Bringing joy to the souls that are sighing

In hovels where poverty dwells-

There is life, there is life for the dying

In the beautiful Bethlehem bells.


Beautiful Bethlehem bells;

Beautiful bells, beautiful bells,

Beautiful Bethlehem bells.

Far off in a land that is lovely,

For the tender, sweet story it tells,

In the light of a glorious morning,

Rang the beautiful Bethlehem bells;

And still in the hearts of creation

An anthem exultingly swells

At that memory sweet of the ringing

Of the beautiful Bethlehem bells.


They rang o'er the hills and the valleys,

They summoned the glad world that day,

From the regions of night to the manger,

Where the beautiful Child Jesus lay;

And forever and ever and ever

A wonderful melody dwells

In the tender, sweet ringing and singing

Of the beautiful Bethlehem bells.
