Johnny Cash

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. more »

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.

I thought how as the day had come
The belfries of all Christendom 
Had rolled along unbroken song
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.
 
And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said 
For hate is strong that mocks the song
Of peace on earth goodwill to men. 

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doubt he sleeps 
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth goodwill to men.

'Til ringin' singin' on its way
The world revolve from night to day 
A voice, a chime, a chance so blind,
On earth goodwill to men.

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead nor doubt he sleeps 
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth goodwill to men.
