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

And in that hall there stands a bed
The bells of paradise, I heard them ring
Scarlet the coverlet over it spread
And I love my Lord Jesus, above anything

At the foot of that bed there grows a thorn
The bells of paradise, I heard them ring
It blooms, ere it blossoms the day he was born
And I love my Lord Jesus, above anything

And under that bed there runs a flood
The bells of paradise, I heard them ring
The half it runs water, the other runs blood
And I love my Lord Jesus, above anything

And over that hall the moon shines bright
The bells of paradise, I heard them ring
Denoting our saviour was born that night
And I love my Lord Jesus, above anything
