Christmas Bells

Estándar

I heard the bells on Christmas day

their old, familiar carols play,

and wild and sweet

the words repeat

of peace on earth, good will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,

the selfies of all christendom

had rolled along

the unbroken song

of peace on earth, good will to men!

Till ringing, singing on its way,

te world revolved from neigh to day,

a voice, a chime,

a chant sublime

of peace on earth, good will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth

the cannon thundered in the South,

and with the sound

the carols drowned

of peace on earth, good will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent

the hearth stones of a continent,

and made forlorn

the households born

of peace on earth, good will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;

“there is no peace on earth,” I said;

“for hate is strong,

and mocks the song

of peace on earth, good will to men!

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

the Wrong shall fail,

the Right prevail,

with peace on earth, good will to men!

 

Henry W. Longfellow. Estados Unidos(1807-1882)
