Three bells Lyrics

Three bells by Jim Ed Brown  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Three bells There's a village hidden deep in the valley
Among the pine trees all forlorn
And there on a sunny morning
Little Jimmy Brown was born
So his parents brought him to the chapel
When he was only one day old
And the priest blessed the little fellow
"Welcome, Jimmy, to the fold".

All the chapel bells were ringing
In the little valley town
And the songs that they were singing
Were for baby Jimmy Brown.
And the little congregation
Prayed for wisdom from above
"Lead us not into temptation,
Bless this hour of meditation,
Guide him with eternal love."

There's a village hidden deep in the valley
Beneath the mountains high above
And there, twenty years thereafter
Jimmy Brown would meet his love
Many friends were gathered in the chapel
And many tears of joy were shed
In June on a Sunday morning
When Jimmy and his bride were wed.

All the chapel bells were ringing
'Twas a great day in his life
And the songs that they were singing
Were for Jimmy and his wife
And the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above:
"Lead us not into temptation,
Bless, oh Lord, this celebration,
May their lives be filled with love."

From the village hidden deap in the valley
One rainy morning dark and grey
A soul winged its way to Heaven
Jimmy Brown had passed away.
Silent people gathered in the chapel
To say farewell to their old friend
Whose life had been like a flower
Budding, blooming 'till the end.

Just a lonely bell was ringing
In the little valley town
'Twas farewell that it was singing
To our good old Jimmy Brown.
And the little congregation
Prayed for guidance from above:
"Lead us not into temptation,
May his soul find the salvation
Of thy great eternal love."
