Here are the Away in A Manger Lyrics

Verse 1

Away in a manger​​​​​​​, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head. The stars in the sky looked down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

Verse 2

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes. I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky, And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh.

Verse 3

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.

Merry Christmas. We hope you thoroughly enjoyed the Lyrics to Away in a Manger. Ascribed to Martin Luther, even though in modern times this is not thought to be the case, Away in a Manger is a pretty popular Christmas song. James R Murray and William J Kirkpatrick are responsible for two of the most popular tunes for this Christmas carol.

Away in a Manger is a Christmas song that talks affectionately about an infant Jesus. We know that The Lord Jesus Christ came into the earth as a baby, but as a Son.

As a father, I can remember distinctly when my children were born.

I can remember the doctors and nurses involved, and I can remember the cute baby smells that they had when they were washed with the baby soap that their Mom used. Oh, the days!

I can only imagine that this moment was very special to the Father because He sent His Son as a baby into the world.

We know that it was a big deal because the angels were sent on display saying, "Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth to whom He favors."

May this Christmas season be met with joy in your life. For a baby was born, but a Son was given! May God comfort you with this tune and its lyrics in Jesus' Name.

About Away In A Manger

No Crib for a Bed, the little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet Head

No crib for a bed simply means that the Lord Jesus did not have the luxury of sleeping in a mattress, but as the scripture says, he was in a lowly stable. He was in a manger, there among the animals and it's important to realize that just as the first man Adam, was among the animals for God made the animals for him to help him so to the Lord Jesus was among animals at His birth.

The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head - It's important in the New Testament to realize that the Lord Jesus wants a place to lay down His Head in your life, where His thoughts, mind, concepts, and wisdom can be given to you. It is our prayer, that you give the Lord a place to lay down His Head.

Close by me forever, and love me I pray. Bless all the dear children

Close by me forever and love me, I pray - The Lord Jesus in the New Testament affirms that he is with us always, even until the end of the age. And so as a born-again believer, having the Lord with you forever is a staple. What you want to do is to continuously submit to His Lordship in your life, and He will, in fact, bless the little children. He will bless you, His Dear children.
