We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Keep the heart bells ringing

Representative Text

1 Keep the heart-bells ringing as you travel onward,
Up the rough and rugged road of life;
For their music sweet will cheer you when aweary,
It will lighten toil, and sweeten strife.

Keep the heart-bells ringing
Fill the world with singing
Until echoes answer everywhere;
They will color duty
With a rainbow beauty,
And a soul may rescue from despair.

2 Keep the heart-bells ringing when the path is lonely,
When the threatening sky is cold and gray;
They will give to every cloud a silver lining
That will help to drive the storm away. [Refrain]

3 Keep the heart-bells ringing, for their cheering music
May be heard by someone fainting near;
He will listen, and his spirit will awaken,
As their cadence falls upon his ear. [Refrain]
