Ring Out, Wild Bells - (MEDIUM) Solo Voice + Piano
HIGH & MEDIUM voice versions are available for each song. (The recording is the HIGH version.)
This is a New Year Hymn. A wonderful way to say goodbye to the old, and welcome the new.
Text from poem "In Memoriam" by Alfred Lord Tennyson:
Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that saps the mind
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.
