Song Lyrics

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed.

The little lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.

The stars in the bright sky look down where he lay.

The little lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

The cattle a-lowing, the baby awakes.

The little lord Jesus no crying he makes.

I love thee lord Jesus. Look down from the sky.

And stay by my side 'till 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.
