Submit Corrections Cancel

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little loard Jesus lay down His sweet head,
The stars in the bright sky looked down where
He lay,
The little boy Jesus asleep on the bed

the cattle are lowing, the baby awakes

But little loard Jesus, no crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky.
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh

sweet bells they ring, they ring out the news today,
that Christ was born, was born on Christmas day,

Be near me, Prophet Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me for ever and love me, I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to Heaven to live with Thee there

sweet bells they ring, they ring out the news
that Christ was born, was born on Christmas Day,
that Christ was born, was born on Christmas day.
