The Carpenters - I heard the bells on Christmas day
Tekst: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow / Muziek: Johnny Marks
(1984)






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”



Good will to men
