Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1809-1892
Ring out the old, ring in the new,|
Ring, happy bells, across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
2. Ring out a slowly dying cause,
3. Ring out old shapes of foul disease;|
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
4. Ring in the valiant man and free,
