Music by James R. Murray Lyrics by Verses 1 and 2 Traditional, Verse 3 by John McFarland VERSE 1 F Bb F Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, C7 F The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head; Bb F The stars in the sky looked down where He lay, C7 F Gm C7 F The little Lord Jesus, Asleep on the hay. VERSE 2 F Bb F The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes, C7 F But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes. Bb F I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky, C7 F Gm C7 F And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh. VERSE 3 F Bb F Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay, C7 F Close by me forever, and love me, I pray. Bb F Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care, C7 F Gm C7 F And take us to heaven to live with Thee there.
