Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down his sweet head
The stars in the sky
Look down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

The candles are glowing the baby awakes
The little Lord Jesus
No crying he makes
I love you Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh

Be near me Lord Jesus
I ask you to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray
Bless all the dear children
In your tender care
And fit us for heaven to live with you there
