Away In A Manger

Verse 1

Away in a manger no crib for a bed

The little Lord Jesus

Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the sky

Looked down where He lay

The little Lord Jesus

Asleep on the hay

Verse 2

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 cradle

Til morning is nigh

Verse 3

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 fit us for heaven

To live with Thee there
