Seinaru Kane ga Hibiku Yoru (聖なる鐘がひびく夜, "Holy Bell Resounding Through the Night") is the fourth single of Morning Musume subgroup Tanpopo. It was released on October 20, 1999, as an 8 cm CD, and peaked at #2 on the weekly Oricon charts, charting for twelve weeks and selling 86,090 copies in its first week.[1][2] The first press edition contained a special trading card.[3]

It is the only Tanpopo single that doesn't have a B-side track and an instrumental, which are standards for Hello! Project singles. Instead, it includes three solo versions of the songs, sung by the first generation line-up of the group.

In 2002, an English-language cover ("My Love (Holy Night)") was recorded by Lalah Hathaway for the album Cover Morning Musume Hello! Project!.[4]
