away in a manger lyrics: away in a manger

Away in a manger,.
no crib for a 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 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.

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.
