I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY - by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1863 Public Domain (Written December, 1863, during the middle of the American Civil War, as Longfellow was caring for his son Charles, a Union officer, who had been seriously wounded at the battle of New Hope Church, Virginia.) These are the original lyrics. Original name was "Christmas Bells." I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old familiar carols play, And wild and sweet The words repeat Of peace on earth, good-will to men! And thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along The unbroken song Of peace on earth, good-will to men! Till, ringing, singing on its way, The world revolved from night to day, A voice, a chime, A chant sublime Of peace on earth, good-will to men! Then from each black, accursed mouth The cannon thundered in the South, And with the sound The carols drowned Of peace on earth, good-will to men! It was as if an earthquake rent The hearth-stones of a continent, And made forlorn The households born Of peace on earth, good-will to men! And in despair I bowed my head; "There is no peace on earth," I said, "For hate is strong, And mocks the song Of peace on earth, good will to men!" Then pealed the bells more loud and deep; God is not dead; nor doth he sleep! The Wrong shall fail, The Right prevail, With peace on earth, good-will to men!Source: http://suvcw.org/mollus/art005.htm
