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. Now we hail the joyous chime
Of Easter joy-bells ringing;
Now we hail the gladsome time
When happy hearts are singing;
When happy hearts are singing:

Refrain
Bells oh ring, and glad hearts sing,
Tell the wondrous story,
To the world a message bring
Of the King of glory.

2. Oft as mercy Easter bells
Ring out their message golden;
Each measured chime in music tells
A story sweet and olden;
A story sweet and olden. [Refrain]

3. Bells of Easter earth can know,
Sweeter music never!
Ring in gladness to and fro,
Oh, ring on forever!
Oh, ring on forever! [Refrain]
