• Brandon Heath - Away In A Manger Lyrics

    From the album Christmas Is Here

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

    The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes
    But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes
    I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle 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 take us to Heaven to live with Thee there
