Away in a manger
Written by Martin Luther, Eugene Clark, Carl Mueller
[3/4 time]

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 sky looked down where He lay
    F           C      G7           C
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

                          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 cradle till morning is nigh
                                      F           C
Be near me Lord Jesus I ask Thee to stay
      G7                C  
Close by me forever and love me I pray

                               F          C   
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care

    F          C         G7             C 
And take us to heaven to live with thee there
