Song Meaning
Verse 1
Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay
The cattle are lowing the poor baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes
I love the Lord Jesus look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh
Verse 2
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 takes us for heaven to live with thee there
Verse 3
Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay
