Ring Out, Wild Bells (Poem)

Ring out slowly a dying cause,
And acnient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring our old shaped of foul disease;
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in he Christ that is to be.
