The sound of bells ringing is a joyful noise! Sadly, our bells we made don't make noise on their own, so the kids were 'ring! ringing!' and 'ding! donging!' all over the house with these.
"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endure forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations." ~ Psalm 100
