Jesus, Jesus, rest your head

Language: English

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.

Have you heard about our Jesus,
Have you heard about His fate?
How His Mother went to the stable
On that Christmas Eve so late?
Winds were blowing,
Cow were lowing,
Stars were glowing,
Glowing, glowing.

Jesus, Jesus, rest your head,
You have got a manger bed, etc...
