Preserving the Good – 31 Christmas Carols/Ding Dong Merrily on High

Although the big day is over, and in spite of so many world crises, even though I might sound cliche, I hope to keep the spirit of Christmas in my heart the whole year through. We’ve made some adaptations due to current circumstances of the pandemic, but I have hope for a brighter year. As Tiny Tim said, “God bless us, every one.”

The Christmas Tree – Albert Chevallier Tayler (1911)

DING DONG MERRILY ON HIGH by George R. Woodward (1924)

Ding dong! Merrily on high
In heav’n the bells are ringing:
Ding dong! verily the sky
Is riv’n with angel-singing.
Glo——————————ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
Glo——————————ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!

E’en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And io, io, io,
By priest and people sungen:
Glo——————————ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
Glo——————————ria,

Hosanna in excelsis!
Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers;
May you beautifully rhyme
Your e’entime song, ye singers.
Glo——————————ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
Glo——————————ria,
Hosanna in excelsis!
