Down In Yon Forest

Down in yon forest there stands a hall:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
Things covered all over with purple and pall
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.
 
Down in that hall there is a bed:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
All scarlet, the cover, the cover it spread
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.
 
And on that the bed there lies a knight:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
And he doth bleed by day and by night
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything
 
Down 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.
 
Down at the bed's foot there springs a thorn:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
The bloom bits white blossom the day he was born
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.
 
And over that place the moon shines bright:
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
To show that our saviour was born on that night
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.
