Away In a Manger

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, [cradle]
‘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.

Away In a Manger
YouTube Videos

There are a couple of different tunes for this song. The first video is not what would be the traditional tune we use in the United States, but I love this version of the song.

This one may be more familiar.
