Away in a Manger

Verse 1

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head
The stars in the sky look down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

Verse 2

The cattle are lowing, the Baby a-wakes
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle 'til morning is nigh

Verse 3

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