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.
So his parents brought him to the chapel,
When he was only one day old.
And the priest blessed the little fellow,
Welcomed Jimmy to the fold

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.
Many friends were gathered in the chapel
And many tears of joy were shed.
In June on a Sunny morning
When Jimmy and his bride were wed

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
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
'T was 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
Make his soul find a salvation
For thy great eternal love"
