Away In A Manger


Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay! 

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes
 But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes
 I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
 And stay by my side until morning is nigh!

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
 Close by me forever, and love me, I pray
 Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
 And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there!
