O’er ice and snow
We swiftly go
When wintertime is here,
Our hearts are light,
We sing tonight,
As the sleigh-bells jingle clear.

List, jingle bells,
List, jingle bells,
Singing, ringing, loud and clear,
List, jingle bells,
List, jingle bells,
Making music far and near.

We joy display,
And haste away
While hoofs keep time in song,
The track is clear,
So naught we fear
While we swiftly move along.

Let every heart
Perform a part
In this our jubilee,
While voices sing,
And sleigh-bells ring,
Let us bright and merry be.
