By Vernon E. Bennett One of the few American Christmas carols to last is,"I Heard the Bells" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Lots of his poetry is religious, but not much has been set to music. I am grateful someone gave me a large carol book when I was very. young. I learned all the carols. Many new carols have been written, but seems the best loved are those that have come to us through past centu- ries. Christmas Bells I And thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along The unbroken song Of peace on earth, good-will to men/ HEARD the bells on Christmas Day Their old, familiar carols play, And wild and sweet Then from each black, accursed mouth The words repeat The cannon thundered in the South, Of peace on earth, good-will to men/ And with the sound Ttre carols drowned Of peace on earth, good-will to men/ Till ringing, singing on its way, The world revolved from night to day, A voice, a chime, A chant sublime Of peace on earth, good-will to men/ It was as if an earthquake rent The hearth-stones of a continent, And made forlorn The households born Of peace on earth, good.will to men/ And in despair I bowed my head; "There is no peace on earth," l said; "For hate is strong, And mocks tire song Of peace zm earth, good-will to men/" Then pealed the bells" more loud and deep: "God is' not dead, nor doth He sleep; .- The Wrong shall fail :" The Right prevail, With peace on earth, good-will to men."
