Ani Echoes

(intro instrumental music)

1
Proud ole mountain overlooked a city called Ani
She was filled with churches, a thousand and three
Was thought she'd last forever, evermore
Such a holy place, couldn't fall ever

(chorus)
Churches bells ring, Ani echoes
Her spirit lives on
Heaven knows

2
Then there came conquerors, one by one
Who cared less for the city, damage that was done
'Fore long Ani had been made to fell
All that was left, her story to retell

3
Because of religion, she stood faithful
Being inspired, she stood 'gainst hatefuls
So even when invaders came ridin' in
Her dedication, she did not rescind

(chorus)
Churches bells ring, Ani echoes
Her spirit lives on
Heaven knows

(instrumental)

Proud ole mountain overlooked a city called Ani
She was filled with churches, a thousand and three
Was thought she'd last forever, evermore
Such a holy place, couldn't fall ever

(chorus)
Churches bells ring, Ani echoes
Her spirit lives on
Heaven knows
