Inspiring Lyrics--"I Heard the Bells on Xmas Day"



puppyfootPuppyfoot on 09/10/2008

trivia quiz A deeply moving Christmas carol, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" was based on a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882). The carol is an almost word-for-word copy of the poem, but it omits two verses. The poem, "Christmas Bells," was written in 1864. Longfellow wrote it after receiving news that his son, a soldier in the American Civil War, had been wounded. His anguish was compounded by his depression over the death of his own wife two years earlier in an accident with fire. The author's pain and grief, and resulting bitterness, are vividly portrayed in the earlier verses. Ultimately, however, his faith in God prevailed, leading to the victorious tone of the latter verses. The carol has been set to several different tunes.

A Warning: This Kerblunk consists of 15 items, rather than the usual 10.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: I realize that many songs have different versions of lyrics because they have been revised over the years. If you feel that any of the "wrong" answers on this quiz are actually right and can send me information verifying this, I will gladly consider changing the answers. Thanks for your help.
