Away In A Manger lyrics:

Away in a manger
No crib for His 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 on the hay.

The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes.

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
'Til 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.
