Holiday Announcement

1908

Here the joyous sermon swing

With the Christmas bells;

In their tuneful jingle ring,

Over hills and dells.

As they part the icy air,

Leaving warmth behind,

With a message and a prayer-

Just be kind, kind, kind.

Other bells give stern command

Be brave, swift, strong;

Only Christmas bells expand

With so sweet a song!

Never little song before,

All the world in love could bind;

Hear the Christmas bells implore-

Just be kind, kind, kind.
