LYRIC

Of peace on Earth
Of peace on Earth
Of peace on Earth

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild 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 rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men

And in despair, I bowed 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”

The Wrong shall fail
The Right prevail
With peace on earth, good-will to men
To men
