Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

1 Ring, bells, ring ding, dong ding;
Ring ding, dong ding!
Winter winds are blowing
Cold the night and snowing;
Children, come and greet me;
Open, I entreat ye!
Ring, bells, ring ding, dong, ding;

See the gifts I bring ye,
For each boy and maiden
Richly I am laden.
Ring, bells, ring ding, dong ding;
Ring ding dong, ding!

3 Ring, bells, ring ding, dong ding;
Ring ding, dong ding!
See the candles glowing;
Hearts their love are showing!
List to what I'm telling,
There I'll make my dwelling.
Ring, bells, ring ding, dong ding;
Ring ding dong, ding!
