A frosty Christmas Eve, when the stars were shining
I traveled for the home, where westward falls the hill
And for many, many a village, in the darkness of the valley
Distant music reached me, peals of bells were ringing.
I was lost on Christmas Eve, when the stars were shining
I traveled for a month, to westward falls and hills
And for many little villages in the darkness of the valley
This music did reach me, peels and bells were ringing.
And they sat there and they marveled, and they knew they could not tell whether it were angels, or the bright stars a-singing
And they sat there and they marveled, and they knew they could not tell whether rain were raining, or the bright stars were shining
