The Three Bells Lyrics

The Three Bells (三个铃铛) - The Delta Rhythm Boys

There's a village hidden 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 song that they were singing

 

Was for baby jimmy brown

 

Then 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 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

 

Cause the song that they were singing

 

Was for jimmy and his wife

 

Then the little congregation

 

Prayed for guidance from above

 

Lead us not into temptation

Bless lord this celebration

May their lives be filled with love

 

From the village hidden in the valley

 

One rainy morning dark and grey

 

A soul wings it's way to heaven

 

Jimmy brown had passed away

 

All the chapel bells were ringing

 

In the little valley town

 

And were that they were singing

 

Was for jimmy brown

 

Then the little congregation

 

Prayed for guidance from above

 

Lead us not into temptation

 

Make his soul find a salvation

 

For thy great eternal love
