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

Bridge
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
