- Chorus -
Hush, my little one, listen, Christmas Bells are ringing,
Like the stars, how they glisten,
Ringing and singing and bringing in Christmas,
Hush, my little one, listen, the bells are ringing for you.

- 1 -
Hear the beautiful sound they make, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Calling everyone to awake, Ringing out Christmas Day.
Greet the morn with a wondrous swell, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Big bells strike a thunderous knell, Ringing out Christmas Day.

 - 2 -
Silver bells that ring clear and bright, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Golden bells with a golden light, Ringing out Christmas Day.
Small bells tinkle like broken glass, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Bells with a richer voice made of brass, Ringing out Christmas Day.

3. Bells of china so delicate ring, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Copper bells like a nightingale sing, Ringing out Christmas Day.
Wooden bells that bring such mirth, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Even bells made of clay and earth, Ringing out Christmas Day.

4. Each bell has a voice of its own, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Growing to a melodious tone, Ringing out Christmas Day.
All the bells like a symphony, Hear the bells, the Christmas bells.
Ringing out in sweet harmony, Ringing out Christmas Day.

- Final Chorus -
Hush, my little one, listen, Christmas Bells are ringing,
Like the stars, how they glisten,
Ringing and singing and bringing in Christmas,
Hush, my little one, listen, the bells are ringing for you,
The bells are ringing for you,
The bells are ringing for, ringing for, ringing for, ringing for you.
