Lyrics

Jesus Jesus rest your head
You have got a manger bed
All the evil folks on earth
Sleep in feathers at their birth

Have you heard about our Jesus
Have you heard about his fate
How his momma went to the stable
On that Christmas Eve so late
Winds were blowin'
Cows were lowrin'
Stars were glowin', glowin', glowin'

Jesus Jesus rest your head
You have I got manger bed
(interlude )
To that manger came then wise men
Bringing gifts from hin and yon
For the mother and the father
And the blessed little son
Milkmaids left their fields and flocks
And sat beside the ass and ox

Jesus, Jesus rest your head
You have got a manger bed
All the evil folks on earth
Sleep in feathers at their birth
Jesus jesus rest your head
You have got a manger bed
