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.

Ring from Your Steeple

Ring from your steeple, bells of gladness!

Author: Michael Saward (1981)
Tune: STEEPLE BELLS
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Ring from your steeple, bells of gladness!
This is the day the world was born;
God's voice rang out across the darkness,
light filled the sky that primal morn.

2 Ring from your steeple, bells of victory!
This is the day death's sting was drawn;
God's voice rang out, the tomb was empty,
hope sprang alive that Easter morn.

3 Ring from your steeple, bells of power!
This is the day when, at the dawn,
God's voice rang out through wind and fire,
fresh came the Spirit on that morn.

4 Ring from your steeple, bells of heaven!
This is the day when none shall mourn;
God's voice rings out this one-in-seven,
joy fills the church this Sunday morn.
