Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
         D                   D                 C                           G
The little Lord Jesus, lay down his sweet head.
           G                    G                                 C                        G
The stars in the bright sky, looked down where he lay
         D7                G          |Am   -      D7|  G
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the  hay.

           G                G                   C          G
The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes;
           D               D                   C              G
But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes.
    G                             G                    C                     G
I love thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky,
           D7                 G                     | Am  -   D7|  G
And stay by my bedside, 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 fit us for heaven, to live with thee there
