The Precious Jewel Lyrics

The Precious Jewel - Roy Acuff

Way back in the hills when a boy I once wandered

 

Buried deep in her grave lies a gal that I love

 

She was called from this earth a jewel for heaven

 

More precious than diamonds more precious than gold

 

A jewel here on earth a jewel in heaven

 

She'll brighten the kingdom around God's great throne

May the angels have peace God bless her in heaven

 

They've broken my heart and they've left me to roam

 

When a girl of sixteen we courted each other

 

She promised someday to become my sweet wife

 

I bought her the ring to wear on her finger

 

But the angels they called her to heaven one night

 

A jewel here on earth a jewel up in heaven

 

She'll brighten the kingdom around God's great throne

May the angels have peace God bless her in heaven

 

They've broken my heart and they left me to roam

 

This world has it wealth its' trials and troubles

 

Mother earth holds her treasures of diamonds and gold

 

But it can't hold the soul of one precious jewel

 

She's resting in peace with the heavenly fold

 

May the angels have peace God bless her in heaven

 

 

They've broken my heart and they left me to roam
