Jesus, Jesus Rest Your Head [Out of Print]
- John Jacob Niles
- G. Schirmer
REFRAIN: Jesus, Jesus, rest your head, You has got a manger bed. All the evil (other) folk on earth Sleep in feathers at their birth. Jesus, Jesus, rest your head, You has got a manger bed. 1. 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. REFRAIN. 2. To that 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. REFRAIN. Jesus, Jesus, rest your head, You has got a manger bed.
