JOAN BAEZ lyrics - Down In Yon Forrest

JOAN BAEZ
"Down In Yon Forrest"
(traditional)

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.

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.
