Why do the bells of Christmas ring?
Why do the little children sing?
 
 
Once a lovely shining star,
Seen by shepherds from afar,
Gently moved until it's light
Made a manger's cradle bright.
 
 
There a darling baby lay,
Pillowed soft upon the hay;
And its mother sung and smiled:
"This is Christ, the holy Child!"
 
 
Therefore bells for Christmas ring,
Therefore little children sing.
