Ding Dong Merrily on High

DING DONG! MERRILY ON HIGH

Words by G R Woodward Music based on a traditional French melody

 

1 Ding dong! Merrily on high,

In heaven the bells are ringing.

Ding dong! Verily the sky

Is riven with angels singing.

 

CHORUS

Gloria,

Hosanna in excelsis:

Gloria,

Hosanna in excelsis!

 

2 E’en so, here below, below,

Let steeple bells be swungen:

And i-o, i-o, i-o,

By priest and people sungen!

 

CHORUS

 

3 Pray you, dutifully prime

Your matin chime, you ringers;

May you beautifully rhyme

Your evetime song, you singers.

 

CHORUS
