CHRISTMAS 2011

XMAS11

Down in Yon Forest


Down in yon forest there stands a hall
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
Itís 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
Itís covered all over with scarlet so red
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything

At the bedside 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 bedís foot there grows a thorn
The bells of Paradise I heard them ring
Which ever blows blossoms 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 Savior was born this night
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything
