Jingle Bells

The bells are ringing; truly the sound has been tingling
From the days of old, the story started being told
Of an infant that would be born,
A savior through a virgin with no adorn.
Humbly and meekly he would come
To everyone who would welcome
He shall stand to feed his flock in the strength of the Lord.
In the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
The bells are ringing,
the angels came singing
To shepherds in the fields watching their flocks by night
They saw a bright shining light that took them to the site
To see something that wasn't new,
but proved the saying to be true
That "unto us a child is born, and unto us a Son is given".
With the government being upon his shoulder,
The kingdom of Satan began to falter.
But the devil will stop at nothing
Because he was up to something.
Making the Savior die on the tree.
On the old rugged cross at Calvary.
To Satan, this was a victory,
But God proved it was a mystery.
Even death stood speechless,
When on the Savior, his sting was useless.
It was like in the times of Moses
When only the high priest entered the holies
And if the service was rightly done, he would still be moving.
But those outside knew he was dead when the bells stopped ringing
This High Priest entered into the holy place,
The hordes of hell saw his face
Behold, the people are singing
He's alive because the bells are ringing.
The bells are ringing, they are ringing loud and clear.
Proclaiming that his coming back is near.
All of creation longs to see
When the time of his return would be.
Let him who is holy be holy still
Let him who is righteous be righteous still
For behold I come quickly with my reward with me
To give to everyone as his works shall be
Brethren in Christ, where do you stand?
To the right or the left, which side of his hands?
The sound of the bell that will soon be heard
Is the trumpet call to rise up the dead.
This is the time to make things right.
This is the day, it'll soon be night
The bells are ringing…ringing…. RINGING.
