Original Key: D


Verse 1:
  D                            Bm  Em
A-way in a manger, no crib for  a  bed
           A    D          E7               A
The little Lord Je-sus laid down His sweet head;
    D                              F♯m        B   Em
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay;
             A  D           G       A7   D
The little Lord Je-sus a – sleep on the  hay
Verse 2:
    D                           Bm   Em
The cattle are lowing, the baby a  - wakes
           A    D          E7        A
But little Lord Je-sus, no crying He makes:
  D                            F♯m       B  Em
I love Thee, Lord Jesus!  Look down from on high
            A   D         G         A7  D
And stay by my side until mor-ning  is  nigh.
Verse 3:
    D                              Bm   Em
Be near me, Lord Jesus: I ask Thee to   stay
            A     D        E7         A
Close by me for - ever and love me, I pray;
      D                        F♯m        B    Em
Bless all the dear children in Thy  ten - der care,
           A   D         G         A7   D
And fit us for heaven to live with Thee there.

AWAY IN A MANGER, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head;
The stars in the bright 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 You, Lord Jesus! Look down from the sky
And stay by my side until morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus: I ask You to stay
Close by me forever and love me, I pray;
Bless all the dear children in Your tender care,
And fit us for heaven to live with You there.
