[key: F]

1.  Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,

the little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head;

the stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay;

the little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

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 side until morning is nigh.

3.  Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask You to stay

close by me for ever and love me, I pray;

bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,

and fit us for heaven to live with Thee there.
