“I Heard the Bells”

A church planting friend of mine shared the lyrics from the song “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” with me. Sadly, I’d never heard this Christmas classic before a couple of days ago. As I read the lyrics they seemed timely. Verses 3 and 4 say:

And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead; nor does he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Yes and amen to those lyrics. A quick search revealed that one of my groups, The Civil Wars, had recorded this song and I’ve included it below.
