A Christmas bell rings out for peace

Across the troubled Earth

A Christmas child that’s newly born

Proclaims to all once more the birth

Of hope that in each single heart

The joy of love will come to dwell

This is the message ringing clear

Within the sound of a Christmas bell



Chorus:

A Christmas bell

A Christmas sound

A Christmas hope that runs the Earth around

A Christmas bell

Who can tell?

What may come from a Christmas bell?


Across each valley, moor and hill

I hear good will to all

A Christmas child begins to cry-

Within a cold and humble stall

As stars looked down on every town

This single thought begins to swell

That every child will one day hear

The sound of peace in a Christmas bell.


Chorus:



 



One Small Bell
