1 Ring, bells of Bethlehem,
ding-dong-ding, ding-a-dong-a-ding;
rise up, Jerusalem,
joyfully sing.
Come from your lands afar,
ding-dong-ding, ding-a-dong-a-ding,
follow the royal star,
look for the king!

2 Come, as the wise of old,
ding-dong-ding, ding-a-dong-a-ding;
frankincense, myrrh and gold
joyfully bring:
incense shows fervent prayers,
ding-dong-ding, ding-a-dong-a-ding,
myrrh his great love declares,
gold makes him king!

3 Ring, bells of Bethlehem,
ding-dong-ding, ding-a-dong-a-ding;
rise up in Jerusalem,
joyfully sing.
Come and before him bow,
ding-dong-ding, ding-a-dong-a-ding,
open your treasures now,
welcome your king!
