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

Easter bells

Representative Text

1 Ring, bells, ring out the story
Of our risen Lord and king;
He hath despoiled the spoiler,
Gladly now His praises ring.

Ring! ring! Easter bells!
Ring! ring! Easter bells!
Ring! ring!
Sweetest praises to our risen king;
Ring! ring! Easter bells!
Ring! ring! ring! ring!
Praises to our risen king!

2 Ring, bells, in joyous chorus,
Give the waiting nations cheer;
Join all our hearts and voices,
Christ is risen, do not fear. [Refrain]

3 Ring, bells your sweetest music,
Christ our king ascends on high;
Again in clouds He cometh,
Jesus lives, and death shall die. [Refrain]

4 Ring, bells, He ever liveth,
Lives and reigns with God above;
Ring loud and clear His triumphs,
God is mercy, God is love. [Refrain]
