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.

Representative Text

1 Sweet Easter bells a-chime,
Ring in the glorious time,
When o’er His foes the Lord arose
In majesty sublime;
Let earth the joyful tidings speed,
And shout, and shout,
The Lord is ris’n indeed.

Oh, Easter bells, ring on, ring on!
Oh, Easter bells, ring on, ring on!
With tuneful sound the world around,
Ring on sweet bells,
Ring on, ring on, ring on!

2 Ring in the reign of peace,
When sin and conflict cease,
And while we sing and praise our king,
May love and faith increase;
Let earth the joyful tidings speed,
And shout, and shout,
The Lord is ris’n indeed. [Refrain]

3 Ring out Jehovah’s praise,
A peal of triumph raise,
Ring sweet and clear, ring far and near,
To hail this day of days;
Let earth the joyful tidings speed,
And shout, and shout,
The Lord is ris’n indeed. [Refrain]
