Thread Name: Lyr Req: Jean Ritchie's 'Christmas Bells' round
Subject: ADD: Ring the Christ Church Bells (Jean Ritchie)
Ah, here it is - page 94 of her Celebration of Life Songbook.

(new additional words & music by Jean Ritchie)

Ring along! Ring along!
O ring the merry Christmas bells;
A Son is born! A Son is born!
O ring the merry Christmas bells.

Sing the song! Sing the song!
O sing the merry Christmas Time;
A King is born! A King is born!
O sing the Christmas Time.

Ring a ring! Ring a ring!
Dance the merry Christmas Time;
Long live the King! Long live the King!
O ring the Christ Church bells!
