Away in a manger

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. 

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 cradle till morning is nigh. 

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.
