Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

180. Chime On

1 We leave the world of care,
To greet one day in seven;
To join in praise and prayer,
And learn the way to heaven.
The Sabbath bells invite us all,
Faint emblem of God’s holy call.

Refrain:
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on, sweet bells, your cheerful ring
Shall tune our lips God’s praise to sing;
Chime on, sweet bells, chime on.
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on, sweet bells
Chime on, sweet bells,
Chime on, sweet bells,
Chime on, sweet bells,
Chime on, sweet bells, chime on.

2 We leave our books and play,
To read that Book Divine;
‘Tis there we learn the way
To joys that ne’er decline;
The music of the Sabbath bells,
How sweetly on the ear it swells!
Chime on, sweet bells, your welcome ring
Shall tune our hearts God’s praise to sing. [Refrain]

3 We leave our earthly home,
To seek that blest above,
Where loved companions come
To lift their hearts to God;
O hear with joy the sound that tells
The music of those Sabbath bells.
Chime on, sweet bells, long may you ring,
And call our hearts God’s praise to sing. [Refrain]
