"AWAY IN THE MANGER"

[Lay down, Sweetheart
Mommy will tell you a story about the Baby Jesus.]

Away in a manger,
No crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head;
The stars in the sky
Looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay.
-[See, He was going to sleep - just like you.]

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 side
'Til morning is ni-igh.

Ooh, yea-eah,
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 fit us for Heaven
To live with Thee there.

He'll take you to Heaven,
He'll take you away. [Away in a manger...]
[Jesus loves you.]
