Down In Yon Forest

This song is by Steeleye Span and appears on the album Winter (2004).

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

And at the bed side there stands a stone
The bells of paradise I heard them ring
Where the sweet Virgin Mary has 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 bed's foot there grows a thorn
The bells of paradise I heard them ring
Which ever blows blossom since Adam was born
And I love my Lord Jesus above anything
