Down In Yon Forest lyrics:

Down in yon forest there stands a hall
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
It's covered all over with purple and pall
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.

In that hall there stands a bed
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
It's covered all over with scarlet so red
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.

At the bed side there lies a stone
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
Which the sweet Virgin Mary knelt upon
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.

Under that bed there runs a flood
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
The one half runs water, the other runs blood
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.

At the bed's foot there grows a thorn
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
Which ever blows blossom since he was born
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.

Over that bed the moon shines bright
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
Denoting our Saviour was born this night
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.
