Away in a manger 
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus 
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the heavens  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 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 fit us for Heaven 
To live with Thee there 

Away in a manger 
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus 
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the heavens  Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus  Asleep on the hay
