Calling a javascript function from server side, using AJAX timer

Hello,

I am developing a ASP.NET ajax application.
I am using a timer:

<asp:Timer ID="Timer1" runat="server" OnTick="Timer_Tick" Interval="5000" />      

The only thing I want to do is to call a javascript function on every tick of the timer:

 protected void Timer_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "blink", "<script>blinkit('2');</script>");
        }

This doesn't work.
The javascript function is being called only if I put the 'RegisterClientScriptBlock' in the Page_Load.

How can I call the javascript every couple of seconds?

Thank you
