Away In A Manger chords
Martin Luther ??  (words by William J. Kirkpatrick  1895)*

Away in a manger,
   C            G
no crib for His bed,
the little Lord Jesus
lay down his sweet head.

the stars in the sky
       C             G
looked down where He lay
    Am          G
the little Lord Jesus,
 C        D   G
asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing,
    C         G
the poor Baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus,
no crying He makes;

I love Thee, Lord Jesus,
     C             G
look down from the sky
    Am         G
And stay by my cradle
     C       D  G
till morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
  C           G
I ask Thee to stay,
Close by me forever,
and love me, I pray!

Bless all the dear children
       C      G
in Thy tender care
    Am         G
And take us to heaven,
   C         D    G
to Live with Thee there.
