Ding Dong Merrily On High

Lyrics by George Woodward
Music by Charles Wood





Ding Dong! merrily on high
In heav'n the bells are ringing
Ding, dong! verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel singing
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis

E'en so here below, below
Let steeple bells be swungen
And lo, i-o, i-o
By priest and people be sungen
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis

Pray ye dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers
May ye beautifully rime
Your evetime song, ye singers
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis
