Hymn/Song Information

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.

Beautiful Bethlehem bells;
Beautiful bells, beautiful bells,
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.

Beautiful Bethlehem bells;
Beautiful bells, beautiful bells,
Beautiful Bethlehem bells.
