Choir Lyrics - Away in a Manger

Choir students: here are the lyrics as promised for our Christmas carol, Away in a Manger. Also, please check out the following video... it may help you with learning the melody.



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! Look down from the sky,
And stay by my bedside 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 bring us to heaven to live with Thee there.
