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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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
