"Christmas Bells," by Alfred, Lord Tennyson 

Christmas Bells by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

The time draws near the birth of Christ:

The moon is hid, the night is still;

The Christmas bells from hill to hill 

Answer each other in the mist.

Four voices of four hamlets round,

From far and near, on mead and moor,

Swell out and fail, as if a door

Were shut between me and the sound;

Each voice four changes on the wind,

That now dilate, and now decrease;

Peace and good will, good will and peace;

Peace and good will, to all mankind
