   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.
