a Commercial Culture release

the lyrics based on the poem "Christmas Fancies" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850 - 1919)

lyrics

When Christmas bells are swinging
above the fields of snow,
We hear sweet voices ringing
from lands of long ago.
And etched on vacant places,
Are half forgotten faces
Of friends we used to cherish,
and loves we used to know –
When Christmas bells are swinging
above the fields of snow.

For life was made for loving,
and love alone repays,
As passing years are proving
for all of Time’s sad ways.
There lies a sting in pleasure,
And fame gives shallow measure,
And wealth is but a phantom
that mocks the restless days,
For life was made for loving,
and only loving pays.

When Christmas bells are pelting
the air with silver chimes,
And silences are melting
to soft, melodious rhymes,
Let Love, the worlds beginning,
End fear and hate and sinning;
Let Love and the Eternal,
be worshipped in all climes
When Christmas bells are pelting
the air with silver chimes.
