CHRISTMAS CHIMES ACROSS THE SNOW
 
div
 
I have loved you all the summer,
In the groves of leafy green;
I have walked by shining rivers,
Where I know my love has been.
When the autumn leaves are falling,
And the breezes whispered low,
When birds were homeward winging,
Fond hope to us was bringing,
The sound of sweet bells ringing
Christmas chimes across the snow.

Refrain: Love of the sunlight and the flow'rs,
Love of the happy golden hours.
When the snows are falling,
And the winds are calling,
Still we hear,
Sweet and clear,
The love-bells ring.

I have seen the roses open
To the first sweet kiss of day;
I have watched the saffron sunset
O'er the mountains far away.
Ah! my love through every season,
Shall be strong in weal and woe,
And love this carol singing,
A brighter hope is bringing,
While bells are gladly ringing
Christmas chimes across the snow.

Refrain: Love of the sunlight and the flow'rs,
Love of the happy golden hours.
When the snows are falling,
And the winds are calling,
Still we hear,
Sweet and clear,
The love-bells ring.
