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

Verse 2
The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes
I love you, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle ‘til morning is nigh

To obscurity's manger from glory well known
From an undeserved cross to a well deserved throne
Through His own chosen death this King reaches His goal
That those dead in their sin would know life and be whole!

Our Great Savior
Hallelujah, what a Savior
Hallelujah, what a Friend
Saving, helping, keeping, loving
He is with me to the end!

Verse 3
Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay
close by me forever and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children in your tender care
And fit us for Heaven to live with you there

Fit us for Heaven to live with you there
