Carol, U.S.A.

“Away in a manger” is a very popular Christmas carol among all carols for children. We don’t know who the author of the lyrics is – although a poem of Luther was previously considered to be the basis for the song.

The most common version is composed by William J. Kirkpatrick in 1895, although there is an older one tune composed by James Ramsey Murray in 1887.

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.

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
But 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.

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.
