We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 Soft and sweet the bells are ringing,
From the chapel old and gray
Sweet and soft the children singing,
Christ the Lord arose today.

Sweetly, softly sounds the anthem,
For the stone is rolled away;
Glory, honor give to Jesus,
On this Resurrection day.

2 Sweeter far than earthly music,
Since the Christmas melody,
Is this song of Easter glory,
This glad psalm of victory. [Refrain]

3 Love's redeeming work is finished,
Fought the fight, the vict'ry won;
Glory, glory in the highest
To the Father and the Son. [Refrain]
