Song Meaning
Verse 1
Way back in the hills, when a boy, I once wandered
Buried deep in her grave lies the one that I love
She was called from this earth, a jewel for Heaven
More precious than diamonds, more precious than gold
Verse 2
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 left me to roam
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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 left me to roam
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
May the angels have peace, God bless her in Heaven
They've broken my heart and they left me to roam
