Lyrics

  1. 1. Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,
    The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head;
    The stars in the heavens looked down where he lay,
    The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
  2. 2. 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 cradle till morning is nigh.
  3. 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.
