Ring Out Ring Out


Ring out Ring Out, herald in the dawn
This was the day the King of Kings
The prince of peace was born

Cry Loud, Cry Clear, let all the nations hear
The heart the soul the love of Christ
All men should hold most dear.

Call Justice, Call Tolerance, the Prince of peace is crowned
Forgive the souls who loose their way
And help them to be found.

Sing out, Sing true, and let all who hear the sound
Rings truth down through the ages
In life his love abounds

Be True, Be blessed, and understand his plight
The time is now to call his name
Forgiveness is his right.

In Freedom, In Light, this is the blessed day
Share with all who care to ask
So they can find their way

Have fun, have peace
with all you hold most dear
Have care keep faith
to face the coming year.

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.
