Away In A Manger

AWAY IN A MANGER
William James Kirkpatrick

AWAY IN A MANGER, NO CRIB FOR A 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!
LOOKED DOWN FROM THE SKY
AND STAY BY MY SIDE UNTIL MORNING IS NIGHT

BE NEAR ME, LORD JESUS, I ASK THEE TO STAY
CLOSE BY ME FOR EVER, AND LOVE ME I PRAY!
BLESS ALL THE DEAR CHILDREN
IN THY TENDER CARE
AND FIT US FOR HEAVEN TO LIVE WITH THEE THERE
