Away In A Manger – Lyrics with Guitar Chords

G         G        C           G
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed                                                      
    D           D         G              G
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.
      G                 G           C         G
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay,
     D          G     C          D        G
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
    G            G          C    G
The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
    D             D       G          G
But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.
   G               G            C             G
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    D            G          C       D   G
And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh.
G                 G        C           G
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
      D           D        G          G
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray
       G             G          C         G
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
      D          G          C       D      G 
And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.
