Carol, Sweetly Carol

Carol, sweetly carol,
A Savior born today;
Bear the joyful tidings,
Oh, bear them far away.
Carol, sweetly carol,
Till earth?? remotest bound
Shall hear the mighty chorus,
And echo back the sound.

Refrain
Carol, sweetly carol,
Carol, sweetly today,
Bear the joyful tidings,
Oh, bear them far away.

Carol, sweetly carol,
As when the angel throng,
O??r the vales of Judah,
Awoke the heavenly song.
Carol, sweetly carol,
Goodwill, and peace, and love,
Sing glory in the highest
To God who reigns above.

Carol, sweetly carol,
The happy Christmas time:
Hark! the bells are pealing
Their merry, merry chime.
Carol, sweetly carol
Ye shining ones above.
Sing, sing in loudest numbers;
Oh, sing redeeming love!

L. J. Kavanagh and James M. McLaughlin, Crown Hymnal (Boston: Ginn and Company, 1912).
