Eddy Arnold - "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" lyrics

(Henry W. Longfellow - John B. Calkin)

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet the words repeat

I thought as now this day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
For hate is strong and mocks the song

God is not dead nor doth he sleeps
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
With peace on earth, goodwill to men...The wrong shall fail the right prevail
