Christmas Songbook

Away In A Manger

Away in a manger❟ no crib for a bed❟
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay❟
The little Lord Jesus asleep on 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 cradle till morning is nigh.

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

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.
