Alleluia, bells are ringing
hear angelic choirs singing…
To the Lord we are bringing
all our praise and thanksgiving!
Alleluia, rejoice in your salvation,
but if you haven’t received God’s invitation,
come to the cross with expectation,
there’s no time for procrastination!
Alleluia, Christmas is almost here!
All around the hemisphere
we celebrate this time of year
with good will and good cheer.
Alleluia, I pray all men will see
Christ was born by God’s decree,
to save lost souls like you and me
and is still setting sinners free!
