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

1. Little bells of Easter, (1)we will gently sway,
Ringing chimes for Jesus on this happy day;
(2)Nodding, gaily nodding, like the flowers we love,
Singing praise all our days for the King above.

Refrain
Bells of Easter gaily swinging to and fro,
Pealing out a gladsome lay as forth we go;
Jesus lives forever is the news we bring,
Blessèd tidings of salvation, Christ is king.

2. Little bells of Easter, (3)swinging all in time,
(4)Round about together hear our echoes chime;
Giving out the sunshine as we pass you by,
Singing praise all our days to the King on high. [Refrain]

3. Little bells of Easter, happy hearts have we,
In our master’s service faithful let us be;
Ever moving onward (5)step by step we’ll go,
Singing praise all our days while on earth below. [Refrain]

1 Swaying motion
2 Bowing
3 Swinging arms
4 Turning around
5 Marching
