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.

Representative Text

1 Merry bells are ringing thro’ the earth again,
Bringing joyful tidings to the sons of men;
Lo! the grave is empty where the Savior lay,
Angels at the dawning rolled the stone away.

Refrain:
Ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring, ring, ring!
O ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring, ring, ring!
O ring the joyful tidings,
Swell the glad refrain;
Christ has burst the bonds of death!
He lives again.

2 Merry bells are ringing! Love’s great work is done;
Christ hath fought the battle and the vict’ry won;
He arose in triumph from the darksome tomb,
Now it shines in splendor, gone is all its gloom. [Refrain]

3 Merry bells are ringing! shout! ye saints of joy!
Let the praise of Jesus ev’ry tongue employ;
Ring the merry chiming bells from shore to shore,
Christ is Royal Victor now, and evermore. [Refrain]
