away in a manger

(Suggested Capo 5)

  C                                    F              C

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed

        G                                  F                        C

The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head

      C                                         F                           C

The stars in the sky looking down where He lay

        F                C            G               C

The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay



         C                                 F          C

The cattle are lowing the Baby awakes

       G                                  F              C

But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes

   C                                              F                       C

I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky

         F                   C                 G                    C

And stay by my cradle ‘till morning is nigh



     C                                       F                 C

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay

           G                               F                C

Close by me forever and love me I pray

           C                                       F                C

Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care

         F               C                   G                      C

And take us to heaven and live with thee there
