Away in a Manger

Posted | 6 comments

Away in a manger, 
   D            G 
No crib for His bed 
    A           D 
The little Lord Jesus 
     Em             A 
Laid down His sweet head 
The stars in the bright sky 
       D             G 
Looked down where He lay 
    A           D 
The little Lord Jesus 
  Em      A   D 
Asleep on the hay 

The cattle are lowing 
The poor Baby wakes 
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 nigh.
