Verse 1:
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

You left Your throne to be with me / Gave the glory of the heavens to die upon a tree / The hope of all the world, our God and Savior / The King of Kings lying in a manger

Verse 2:
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 ‘til morning is nigh

Verse 3:
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

O Come All Ye Faithful

Away in a Manger

King from Birth


O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
