SONG TITLE: Away in a Manger
BY Unknown © 1885

C                   F          C
Away in a manger no crib for a bed 
    G7                     C
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head 
                            F             C
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay 
    F           C       G7          C
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay 

    C                     F         C
The cattle are lowing the baby awakes 
    G7                   C
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes 
                             F             C
I love Thee Lord Jesus  look down from the sky 
     F         C           G7         C
And stay by my side until morning is nigh

          F         C
Be near me, Lord Jesus,
    G7        C
I ask Thee to stay
 F             C
Close by me forever
F   C   G7     C
And love me I pray

Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with Thee there
