Free Sheet Music | Carol of the Bells for Easy Piano

October 12, 2008


Carol of the Bells, which is also known as Ukrainian Bell Carol, was composed by Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych. The piece was first performed in December 1916 by students at Russia’s Kiev University.

Peter Wilhousky of NBC Radio wrote the lyrics in 1936. The piece reminded Wilhousky of ringing bells, which he captured in the imagery in his lyric.

Minna Louise Hohman also wrote lyrics to the piece, titled “Ring Christmas Bells” that have been widely performed.

Carol of the Bells Lyrics (by Peter Wilhousky)

Hark how the bells,
sweet silver bells,
all seem to say,
throw cares away
Christmas is here,
bringing good cheer,
to young and old,
meek and the bold,
Ding dong ding dong
that is their song
with joyful ring
all caroling
One seems to hear
words of good cheer
from everywhere
filling the air
Oh how they pound,
raising the sound,
o’er hill and dale,
telling their tale,
Gaily they ring
while people sing
songs of good cheer,
Christmas is here,
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
On on they send,
on without end,
their joyful tone
to every home
Ding dong ding dong… dong!
