"I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day" as written by and Johnny R. Cash....
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.

I thought how as the day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along unbroken song
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong that mocks the song
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doubt he sleeps
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth goodwill to men.

'Til ringin' singin' on its way
The world revolve from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chance so blind,
On earth goodwill to men.

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead nor doubt he sleeps
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth goodwill to men.
