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

Ring, ring, ring, cheerfully ring

Representative Text

1 Ring, ring, ring, cheerfully ring, ye merry bells,
For a Savior Christ today is born!
Sweetly now unto the world the story tell
Of this happy, happy Christmas morn.

Joy-bells ringing,
Tell the blessed story,
Give to Him the glory;
Joy-bells ringing,
On this happy Christmas morn!

2 Sing, sing, sing, beautiful songs of joy and love,
Sing of Him who came to save us all!
Angels sang of the redemption from above,
Thro’ the lowly infant in the stall. [Refrain]

3 Ring, ring, ring, cheerfully ring, ye merry bells,
Let our songs be full of joy today;
Ev’ry peal unto our heats in mercy tells
That He came to wash our sins away. [Refrain]
