Let Them Ring the Bells

Let Them Ring the Bells

When it is the holiday season
And the spirit is glowing brightly
It is also a time of great dire
For the poor and hungry

Their only salvation
And the guiding light
Are the red kettles and shields
And the chiming of the bells

It takes a special army
Of people young or old
Stationed at stores everywhere
Ringing the bell to signal everyone

As the change falls in the kettles
It is like a river
Of love and kindness
To the people that needs it the most

Let them ring the bells
It brings hope to the hungry
Let them ring the bells
It brings light to the poor

It takes kindness
To donate into the red kettles
It takes courage
To stand in the cold of winter

It takes commitment
To stand up proudly
It takes spirit
To make a difference in the world

Let them ring the bells

This was written by a 2014 bell ringer and presented to me.
