Away in a Manger

W.J. Kirkpatrick
Third verse by John T. McFarland
Arr. Allan Bevan
Published: Randall M. Evan, Publisher of Music, Ltd.

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head.
The stars in the bright 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 ‘til 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.
