Christmas for dummies
Away in a manger

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 on the hay.
2. 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 cradle,
till morning is nigh.
3. 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 take us to Heaven,
to live with thee there.
