LYRICS

Away in a manger, no crib for our 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 side until morning is night

Away in a manger, no crib for our 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
