Down in yon forest there stands a hall
Bells of paradise I hear them ring
It's gilded all over with purple and pall
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything

Down in that hall there lay a bed
Voices of heaven here in my head
All scarlet the cover that over it spread
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything

Down under that bed there runs a flood
Bells of heaven I hear them ring
Half run in water
Half run in blood
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything

Down at the bed feet there grows a thorn
Voices of heaven I hear them sing
It blooms its white blossoms the day he was born
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything
