The Army and Navy Hymnal/Hymns/Ring Out the Old, Ring In the New
|146||Ring Out the Old, Ring In the New|
|(WALTHAM. L. M.)|
|Alfred Tennyson, 1850||J. Baptiste Calkin, 1872|
1.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,
And ancient forms of party strife,
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
3.Ring out old shapes of foul disease ;
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thou-sand wars of old,
Ring in the thou-sand years of peace.
4.Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be. Amen
