1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. At the bed's foot there grows a thorn:
 The bells of Paradise I heard them ring:
Which ever blows blossom since he was born:
 And I love my Lord Jesus above anything.

6. 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.
