                                      Away In The Manger
 

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.

     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 till morning is nigh.

     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.
