"Away in a Manger" traditional

(3/4 time . 4 bar intro)

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.

(4 bar interlude)

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.

(4 bar interlude)

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.
