• Casting Crowns - Away In A Manger Lyrics

    From the album Peace On Earth

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

    The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes
    the little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes
    I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle, 'Til 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

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
    The little Lord Jesus, lay down His sweet head
    Lord of all creation, lay down His sweet head
    The Savior of the nation, lay down His sweet head
