Alison Krauss – Three Bells Lyrics

Album: Tribute To Tradition

There’s a village hidden deep in the valley

Among the pine trees half forlorn

And there on a sunny morning

Little Jimmy Brown was born.

All the chapel bells were ringing

In the little valley town

And the songs that they were singing

Was for baby Jimmy Brown.

And the little congregation

Prayed for guidance 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 was to meet his love.

All the chapel bells were ringing

Twas a great day in his life

For the songs that they were singing

Was 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 deep in the valley

One rainy morning dark and grey

A soul which wait in the heaven

Jimmy Brown had passed away.

Just the lonely bell was ringing

In the little valley town

Twas there will 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 this salvation

Of Thy great eternal love…
