Vof. XIV. DECEMBER, 1902. No. 12 Christmas Bells. (Acrostic.) By Marcella A. Fitzgerald. s sound waves of music that ebb and flow Merrily, merrily over the earth; East wind and west wind, as chill they blow; Ring, musical bells, ring loud, ring low, Ring out the tidings of Jesus' birth. m, till the northlahd and southland hear Christmas' psalmody, praise and peace, Mope and the love that shall know no fear Radiance of Bethlehem's starlight clear, n whose rare splendor all troubles cease. Sing the glad Gloria over again; Tell to each listening, faithful heart Message of mercy sublime to men, And all countless favors given them then Sing the great blessings Christ will impart. Till answ'ring your summons so loud and long, 0 Bells of Christmas, we seek His shrine, As shepherds of old, a rude, eager throng, Led by the angels with midnight song Like them to worship the Babe Divine.
