Away in a manger

Away in a manger

Away in a manger, no crib forabed,
the little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky, looked down where he lay,
the little Lord Jesus asleepon 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 lead us to heaven to live with Thee there.
