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. Joy is in our message!
Peal the Christmas bells!
Joy, great joy re-echoes
From the glory in the story
Which our chimes are telling,
As the music swells;
Ringing, ringing, new joy bringing,
Peal the Christmas bells.

Refrain
To every land in anthem grand,
From the northern icy tow’rs
To the sunset land of flow’rs;
O’er every sea, to the bond and free,
We repeat the song of angel throng;
The Savior now is ours!

2. Peace we softly echo
In our silvery chime,
O’er the world’s great midnight
Softly stealing, sweetly pealing,
Glorious news we’re bringing
At the Christmas time!
Now increasing, never ceasing,
In our song sublime. [Refrain]

3. Now good will we’re sounding,
In a mighty strain!
Like the angel chorus
From the glory with the story,
Sung that Christmas morning
Over Bethle’em’s plain;
Swelling, sounding, still resounding,
As we peal again. [Refrain]
