(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.
Also known as:
Be Near Me Lord Jesus
Luthers Cradle Hymn
Away In The Manger
