Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

John Gorka - Christmas Bells

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
Peace on earth, good will to men

I thought how, as the day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men
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
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
Peace on earth, good will to men

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
Wild and sweet, the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men
Peace on earth, good will to men

Peace on earth, good will to men!

I have no religion.
But I believe there are still good people
I hope that more people can believe this.
