Blessed Bells - Carol Series (11)


Tune: Personent Hodie

('Long ago, prophets knew')


Jesus Christ comes to earth

Here behold, Saviour's birth

Comes midst mankind to dwell

The glad tidings now tell

Sound joyful Christmas bells



He light of the world

God's plan here unfurled

Scatters darkness of night

Bring's salvation's day bright


In His love and His grace

God comes to human race

In person of the Son

Messiah, Promised One

Our Advent preps* now done (*preparations) - Chorus


He the Word of God true

Though as babe Him we view

At His birth welcome we

Him, and His glory see

Lasting eternally - Chorus

  • Comment from author about the poem: A Carol-Poem - Verses in Chorus in A 'new' Carol in the video. Well, new enough to me - from 1970! The tune name of this carol means 'resound or resonate'. It is also the title of an old carol from around 1582 in Latin. My next carol will be in Latin - not!

      Thanks B/C. You ringing them bells? Some may say 'Blessed bells, always waking me up this time of year.' Oohhh! I say that when KP gets the bells out at about 5am each morning now. lol.

        This wonderful story of Jesus birth speaks to the birth of all, in hearts and souls. Once again beautifully told my friend. However if you do choose to use Latin next time, I took a year of it in high school, and don't remember a word. A very Happy Christmas to you!

          Thanks Bella. My extent of Latin is almost this...... I took so long finding out what Carpe Diem meant, that by the time I found out there was not much day left to seize, as it was bedtime! Doh! The daft adventures of Orchi No.4785, or something like that. I've lost count. lol.
          Fido of course speaks, writes, and understands Latin fluently. Seasons Greetings too.

            You my friend are a wit and a charmer. This is the belly laugh of the day. Hats off to Fido, has he earned his degree yet?

            I ticked the red heart shaped button Mr. O because in spite of everything, I quite like the sound of bells ringing & after all, tis the season for giving innit 🙂

            • orchidee

              Yes, thanks Neville. Bells OK - except if you're Quasimodo: 'The bells, the bells'.
