Lyrics

Down in yon forest stands a hall,
Sing May, Queen May, sing Mary!
'Tis dark and dim since Adam's fall,
Sing all go,Od folk for the new-born baby!

And in that hall there stands a bed,
Sing May, Queen May, sing Mary!
It's covered over with scarlet so red,
Sing all go,Od folk for the new-born baby!

And at the bed's fo,Ot there grows a thorn,
Sing May, Queen May, sing Mary!
Which ever blo,Oms since he was born,
Sing all go,Od folk for the new-born baby!

And at the bed there lies a stone,
Sing May, Queen May, sing Mary!
Placed there for sinners to atone,
Sing all go,Od folk for the new-born baby!

Over that bed the mo,On shines bright,
Sing May, Queen May, sing Mary!
to greet our Savior born this night,
Sing all go,Od folk for the new-born baby!
