During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

1 Bells of Easter, sweetly ring,
"Christ is King, Christ is King";
With your silvery voices say,
"Christ arose today!"

Refrain:
Ring our precious song anew!
Ring your story sweet and true,
Bells of Easter, ring and say,
"Christ arose today!"

2 Ring the word the angel gives,
"Jesus lives, Jesus lives!"
Ring again that happy lay,
"Christ arose today!" [Refrain]

3 Ring until the whole world knows,
"Christ arose, Christ arose!"
Send the tidings far away,
"Christ arose today!" [Refrain]
