Away in a Manger

Verse 1: 

D                    G          D    

Away in a manger no crib for a bed 


The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head 

    D                        G             D     

The stars in the sky looked down where He lay 

     Em      A   D       Em      A   D 

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay 

Verse 2: 

The cattle a-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 til morning is Nigh 

Verse 3: 

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
