Kenny Loggins: The Bells Of Christmas

Kenny Loggins - December

One of my favorite Christmas standards is the beautiful song “The Bells of Christmas” by Kenny Loggins. It’s from his terrific Christmas album, December.

For your listening and reading pleasure, below you’ll find a Spotify Play Button for the song as well as the lyrics. Enjoy!

 

“The Bells of Christmas”

Imagine a boy
Kneeling by the window
Lookin out across the driveway at the rain
Will it always rain

I remember the bells
Comin’ from the churchyard
And I thought they played their music just for me
And day by day
The rain turned to snow
I don’t hear them anymore

The bells of Christmas
Will ring for us again
When we truly do believe
What Christmas really means
So light a candle
That every man may see
The world of hope and promise
Like the one we knew back when and
We’ll ring the bells of Christmas
Once again

There was a girl
Lived around the corner
With eyes as black as Mary’s must have been
I wonder
Does she miss her friend
I remember the day
All the bells were ringing
As I watched her cross the churchyard in the snow
And all my searching
For all I lack
Is just trying to get that feeling back

The bells of Christmas
Will ring for us again
When we truly do believe
What Christmas really means
So light a candle
That every man may see
A world of hope and promise
Like the one we knew back when and
We’ll ring the bells of Christmas once again

The future of the world, they say
Is in the children’s hands
Perhaps if we could let them lead
We’d come to understand

The bells of Christmas
Will ring for us again
When we truly do believe
What Christmas really means
So light a candle that every man may see
The world of hope and promise
Like the one we knew back when and
We’ll ring the bells of Christmas once again
We’ll ring the bells of Christmas once again
