Away in a manger
No crib for a bed 
The little Lord Jesus 
Laid down His sweet head 

The stars in the sky 
Looked down where He lay 
The little Lord Jesus 
Asleep on the hay 

The cattle are lowing 
The Baby awakes 
The 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 fate us for heaven 
To live with Thee there

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed 
The little Lord Jesus 
Laid down His sweet head 

The Lord of all creation
Laid down His sweet head 
The Savior of the nation
Laid down his sweet head
