  • 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!

    E'en so here below, below,
    Let steeple bells be swungen,
    And "Io, io, io!"
    By priest and people sungen.
    Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

    Pray you, dutifully prime
    Your matin chime, ye ringers;
    May you beautifully rime
    Your evetime song, ye singers.
    Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
