Christmas in the Carpatho-Rusyn Tradition

Carol of the Bells - - Zvoncekova Koleda

RealAudio Carol of the Bells by J.A.M.
from their CD - A Tiny Child Will Come

Hark! how the bells,
Sweet silver bells,
All seem to say
"Throw cares away."
Christmas is here,
Bringing good cheer,
To young and old,
Meek and the bold.
Ding, dong, ding, dong.
That is their song,
With joyful ring,
All caroling.
One seems to hear
Words of good cheer
from everywhere
filling the air.
O, how they pound
Raising their sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale,
Gayly they ring,
While people sing
song of good cheer,
Christmas is here!
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.
On, on they send,
On without end
their joyful tone
to every home.
