I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day is a Christmas carol based on the 1863 poem "Christmas Bells" by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The song tells of the narrator's despair, upon hearing Christmas bells during the American Civil War, that "hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will to men". The carol concludes with the bells carrying renewed hope for peace among men.


In 2008, a contemporary Christian music group, Casting Crowns, scored their eighth No. 1 Christian hit with "I Heard the Bells", from their album Peace on Earth. The song is not an exact replica of the original poem or carol, but an interpolation of verses 1, 6, 7 and 3 (in that order), interposed with a new chorus.

The Lyrics of I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day:

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men
And the bells are ringing
Like a choir they're singing
In my heart I hear them
Peace on earth good will to men
And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth good will to men
But the bells are ringing
Like a choir singing
Does anybody hear them
Peace on earth good will to men
Then rang 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
Then 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
And the bells they're ringing
Like a choir they're singing
And with our hearts we'll hear them
Peace on earth good will to men
Do you hear the bells they're ringing
The life the angels singing
Open up your heart and hear them
Peace on earth good will to men
Peace on earth peace on earth
Peace on earth good will to men
