away in a manger lyrics – human nature

away in a manger
no crib for his bed
little lord jesus
lay down his sweet head
the stars in the heaven look down
where he lays
the little lord jesus
asleep in the hay

i carol on, knowing the poor baby sleeps
tough little jesus, no crying he makes
i love the lord jesus
and stay by my cradle to watch if i die

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 take us to heaven
to live with thee there

away in a manger
no crib for his bed
the little lord jesus
lay down his sweet head
the stars in the heaven look down
where he lays
our little lord jesus
asleep hey, hey, hey
