Lee, Brenda - The Angel And The Little Blue Bell Lyrics

At Christmas time in the steeple high
The bells would proudly ring
To tell the world of the joy and cheer
That Christmas day would bring
But one little bell in the steeple high
Could only pain alone and cry
No matter hard he try and try
Poor little thing he couldn't ring at all

All the other bells in the steeple high
Saw all his lonely tears
And watched him tried his best to ring
Each Christmas through the years
But the little blue bell in the steeple tower
Just cry for Christmas pain to call
For like I said inspite of all
Poor little thing he couldn't ring at all

One Christmas eve in the steeple high
An angle did appear
She smiled and said to the little blue bell
I've come to dry yours tears and on that night
So the story's told, she changed the little blue bell
To the purest gold with the richest tone
To whole and whole proud little thing
Just hear him ring

    Merry Christmas @Brenda Lee XxxxOoo

  2. Keri Campbell

    My absolute favorite Christmas song from her. Listened to my mom's green album over and over. Mostly this song. Nat King Cole, Brenda Lee, Dean Martin, Blue Eyes and Perry Como just to name a few. They don't make em like they use to.

    Christmas without Brenda Lee and Nat King Cole is unthinkable! Long live the early 60's holiday music. This song is so very sweet and indicative of simpler times.

  5. Mystic Virgo

    WHen I was like 4 or 5 years old I remember crying to this song because it was so sad! and beautiful at the end ..

    Lucille Cumming

    You were not alone and I still do.

  6. Caressa Anne

    My mother used to sing this to me when I was a kiddo...all year round. I used to sing it to my kiddos when they were little and they’ll probably sing it to their kiddos one day ❤️ Such memories and tradition with this song.

    Thanks for the comment. Good to know that Brenda Lee's your favorite singer. She made some great Christmas recordings.

  12. Holly Gaskin

    This should be made into a children's storybook!


    What a sweet thought. Thanks for sharing it with us.


    Or an animated Christmas special.


    It was turned into a Christmas special back in the 70's. Haven't seen it in years now, just like the other Holiday special "The Night the Animals Talked."
