Peter Wilhousky added these lyrics to the tune of this Ukraine folk music.
The Original lyrics to the song by Mykola Leontovych Shchedryk, meaning bountiful, were sung at New Years. www.carols.org.uk
Carol of the Bells
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.
Oh how they pound, raising the sound,
o'er 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.
Ding dong ding... dong!
