Away in a Manger


Words: Traditional Music by William J Kirkpatrick 1


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.


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 side until 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.
