Carol Of The Bells Lyrics

Carol Of The Bells Song Lyrics


Hark! how the bells
sweet silver bells
All seem to say
throw cares away.

Christmas is here
bringing good cheer
To young and old
meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong
that is their song,
With joyful ring
all caroling

One seems to hear
words of good cheer
From everywhere
filling the air

O, how they pound
raising the sound
Oer hill and dale
telling their tale

Gaily they ring
while people sing
Songs of good cheer
christmas is here!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!

On, on they send
on without end
Their joyful tone
to every home

Hark! how the bells
sweet silver bells
All seem to say
throw cares away.

Christmas is here
bringing good cheer
To young and old
meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong
that is their song
With joyful ring
all caroling.

One seems to hear
words of good cheer
From everywhere
filling the air

O, how they pound
raising the sound
Oer hill and dale
telling their tale

Gaily they ring
while people sing
Songs of good cheer
christmas is here!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!

On, on they send
on without end
Their joyful tone
to every home.

On, on they send
on without end
Their joyful tone
to every home.

"Carol of the Bells," a song that has become synonymous with the Christmas sason, carries a rich history and a deep emotional resonance. Originally titled "Shchedryk," this piece was composed by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych in 1916 and was based on a traditional Ukrainian folk chant celebrating the coming of spring. The song underwent a transformation in its thematic focus when Peter J. Wilhousky wrote English lyrics for it in 1936, shifting its association to Christmas and embedding it deeply into holiday traditions worldwide​​​​​​.

The song's melody, characterized by a repeating four-note motif, evokes a sense of urgency and exxitement, mirroring the joyous atmosphere of the Christmas season. This captivating melody, combined with the enchanting lyrics added by Wilhousky, paints a vivid picture of joy, celebration, and the ringing of bells to announce the birth of Jesus Christ. The powerful and dynamic composition invites listeners to immerse themselves in the magic of the holiday season, offering a sense of joy, anticipation, and wonder​​​​​​.

Disney's adaptations of "Carol of the Bells" have further popularized the song, incorporating it into various projects to enhance storytelling with its evocative power. From its iconic rendition in the 1940 animated film "Fantasia" to its suspenseful arrangement in "Home Alone," Disney has utilized the song's versatility to evoke a range of emotions, from joy and wonder to anticipation and suspense. These adaptations, alongside Disney's use of the song in commercials, have solidified "Carol of the Bells" as a beloved classic that transcends generations, embodying the spirit of Christmas and the essence of festive cheer​​​​​​.
