Melody “Cradle Song” by William J. Kirkpatrick, “Mueller” by James R. Murray
G G7 C G Away in a manger, No crib for a bed, D D C G The little Lord Jesus, Lay down his sweet head. G G7 C G The stars in the bright sky, Looked down where he lay D7 G Am D7 G The little Lord Jesus, Asleep on the hay. G G7 C G The cattle a-lowing, the baby awakes; D D C G But little Lord Jesus, No crying he makes. G G7 C G I love thee, Lord Jesus, Look down from the sky, D7 G Am D7 G And stay by my bedside, 'Till morning is nigh. G G7 C G Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay, D D C G Close by me forever, and love me I pray. G G7 C G Bless all the dear children, in thy tender care, D7 G Am D7 G And fit us for heaven, to live with thee there.
