Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 The bells of peace swell out their anthems
In the heart where Jesus lives;
A melody of joy is ringing
For the life immortal which He gives.

Refrain:
The bells of peace are ringing, ringing, ringing,
The bells of peace are ringing their melody of love;
The bells of peace are ringing, ringing, ringing,
They chime the praises of the Prince of Peace who reigns above.

2 The bells of peace ring out their gladness
To the lonely, broken heart;
Their song is heard in vales of sadness,
And they bid our tears and sighs depart. [Refrain]

3 The bells of peace ring out their story,
Where the King of Peace abides;
My soul is filled with wondrous glory,
For within my heart He now resides. [Refrain]
