Lyrics

JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD

ADAPTED FROM THE SINGING OF THREE PEOPLE IN HARDIN
COUNTRY, KY
ADAPTED BY JOHN JACOB NILES
ARRANGED BY PETER LINK

JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED
ALL THE EVIL FOLK ON EARTH
SLEEP IN FEATHERS AT THEIR BIRTH
JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT OUR JESUS
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT HIS FATE
HOW HIS MAMMY WENT TO THAT STABLE
ON THAT CHRISTMAS EVE SO LATE
WINDS WERE BLOWING COWS WERE LOWING
STARS WERE GLOWING GLOWING GLOWING

JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED
ALL THE EVIL FOLK ON EARTH
SLEEP IN FEATHERS AT THEIR BIRTH
JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED

TO THE MANGER CAME THEN WISE MEN
BRINGING THINGS 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 HAS GOT A MANGER BED
ALL THE EVIL FOLK ON EARTH
SLEEP IN FEATHERS AT THEIR BIRTH
JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED
