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.

Scored for Handbells, Handchimes

Valerie Stephenson begins this setting by combining the unique, singing bell technique on the lower bells with the melody on lower (optional) handchimes, and establishes an ethereal, serene mood. Each of the three verses is given a different treatment reflecting the theme of the text. Verse 1 (Peace) uses the singing bells; Verse 2 (Love) receives a full hymn statement, and Verse 3 (Joy) is malleted throughout in a quasi-boogie style. The ending returns to a modified repeat of Verse 1. This enchanting arrangement is suitable for any time of year and a mellifluous choice for festivals. For 3-5 octaves with optional 2-3 octave handchimes and wind chimes.
