Stille Julenatt

Away in a manger

1. vers

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

2. vers

The cattle are lowing;
the baby awakes,
But the little Lord Jesus
no crying he makes.
I love you,Lord Jesus!
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
until morning is nigh.

3. vers

Be near me, Lord Jesus;
I ask you to stay
Close by me for ever,
and love me, I pray.
Bless all the dear children
in your tender care,
And fit us for heaven,
to live with you there.
