There is a village hidden deep in the valley

Among the pine trees half forlorn

And there on a Sunday 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

Then the little congregation, prayed for guidance from above

(Hallelujah)

Lead us not into temptation, bless this hour of meditation

Guide him with eternal love

(Hallelujah)

There is 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, was a great day in his life

'Cause the songs that they were singing was for Jimmy and his wife

Then the little congregation, prayed for guidance from above

(Hallelujah)

Lead us not into temptation, bless, oh Lord this celebration

May their lives be filled with love

(Hallelujah)

From the village hidden deep in the valley

One rainy morning dark and gray

A soul winged its way to heaven

Little Jimmy Brown had passed away

Just a lonely bell was ringing in the little valley town

Was farewell that it was singing to our little Jimmy Brown

And the little congregation, prayed for guidance from above

(Hallelujah)

Lead us not into temptation, may his soul find the salvation

Of thy great eternal love

(Hallelujah)

(Hallelujah)
