This is a cover song
Description: "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" is a Christmas carol based on the 1863 poem "Christmas Bells" by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The song tells of the narrator's despair, upon hearing Christmas bells during the American Civil War, that "hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, goodwill to men". The carol concludes with the bells carrying renewed hope for peace.
Project brief: Feel free to add to or replace any of the instrumentation. Some piano would be great, but I'm up for anything.

VERSE 1 I heard the bells on Christmas day Their old familiar carols play And wild and sweet the words repeat Of peace on Earth, goodwill to men VERSE 6 And in despair, I bowed my head There is no peace on Earth I said For hate is strong and mocks the song Of peace on Earth, goodwill to men VERSE 7 Then pealed the bells more loud and deep God is not dead nor doth he sleep The wrong shall fail, the right prevail With peace on Earth, goodwill to men VERSE 3 Till, ringing singing on its way The world revolved from night to day A voice, a chime, a chant sublime Of peace on Earth, goodwill to men
