Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

378. Ring, Happy Bells of Easter Time

1 Ring, happy bells of Easter time,
The world is glad to hear your chime;
Across wide fields of melting snow
The winds of summer softly blow,
And birds and streams repeat the chime
Of Easter time, of Easter time.

Refrain:
The world is glad to hear your chime;
Ring, happy bells of Easter time!

2 Ring, happy bells of Easter time,
The world takes up your chant sublime;
The Lord is ris’n! The night of fear
Has passed away and heav’n draws near:
We breathe the air of that blest clime,
At Easter time, at Easter time. [Refrain]

3 Ring, happy bells of Easter time,
Our happy hearts give back your chime;
The Lord is ris’n! We die no more:
He opens wide the heav’nly door;
He meets us, while to Him we climb,
At Easter time, at Easter time. [Refrain]
