“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.”

American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote those words in a poem on Christmas Day of 1864, four months before the War Between the States was finally ended, with victory by the United States. The poem was “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”.

Listen at “An American Carol”
