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

Representative Text

1 Ring on, ring on, ye bells,
Peal forth a gladsome sound,
Jesus, the victor lives today,
His name with honors crown’d.

Ring, ring,
Ring, ring on,
A joyful anthem raise,
Ring on, ring on, ye bells,
Till earth is full of praise.

2 Ring on, ring on, ye bells,
Your silv’ry tones ascend,
Mingling with strains of sweet perfume,
Where flow’rs and music blend. [Refrain]

3 Ring on, ring on, ye bells,
Till dawns the glorious day,
Earth join with heav’n one song shall sing,
And chant one common lay. [Refrain]

4 Ring on, ring on, ye bells,
Your tones of praise divine,
Bursting in one triumphant song,
Shall be true Easter sing. [Refrain]
