King out llie old, ring in the new,
King, happy bells, across the snow;
Th- year is going, let him go;
King ont the false, ring in the true.
King out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more;
King out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of patty strife,
Ring in the nobler mod-s of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
Ring out the care, the want, the sin.
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ringout my mournful rhymes, |
But ring the fuller minstrel in.
Ring out false pride in place and blood, J
The civir slander and the spite;
King in the love of truth and right,
King in the common love of good.
Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
King ou' the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
Ring in the valient man and free.
The larger heart, the kindlier hand,
":•_ out the darkness ol the land.
Ring in the Christ ihat is to be.
