Christmas In the Vineyard

Away In A Manger

(Martin Luther, John Thomas McFarland, William J. Kirkpatrick)

      Away in a manger no crib for a bed;
      The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head.
      The stars in the night 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 take us to heaven to live with Thee there.
