AWAY IN A MANGER


Traditional, Christmas carol

 

 

A-[D]-way in a manger, no [G] crib for a [D] bed

The little Lord [A7] Jesus lay [G] down his sweet [D] head

The [D] stars in the bright sky look [G] down where he [D] lay

The [A7] little Lord [D] Jesus a-[Em]-sleep on [A7] the [D] hay

 

 

The [D] cattle are lowing, the [G] Baby a-[D]-wakes;

But little Lord [A7] Jesus, no [G] crying He [D] makes;

I [D] love Thee, Lord Jesus, look [G] down from the [D] sky;

And [A7] stay by my [D] cradle 'til [Em] morning [A7] is [D] nigh.

 

 

Be [D] near me, Lord Jesus, I [G] ask Thee to [D] stay,

Close by me for-[A7]-ever, and [G] love me, I [D] pray.

Bless [D] all the dear children in [G] Thy tender [D] care,

And [A7] fit us for [D] Heaven to [Em] live with [A7] Thee [D] there.

Capo on 2

 

 

A-[C]-way in a manger, no [F] crib for a [C] bed

The little Lord [G7] Jesus lay [F] down his sweet [C] head

The [C] stars in the bright sky look [F] down where he [C] lay

The [G7] little Lord [C] Jesus a-[Dm]-sleep on [G7] the [C] hay

 

 

The [C] cattle are lowing, the [F] Baby a-[C]-wakes;

But little Lord [G7] Jesus, no [F] crying He [C] makes;

I [C] love Thee, Lord Jesus, look [F] down from the [C] sky;

And [G7] stay by my [C] cradle 'til [Dm] morning [G7] is [C] nigh.

 

 

Be [C] near me, Lord Jesus, I [F] ask Thee to [D] stay,

Close by me for-[G7]-ever, and [F] love me, I [C] pray.

Bless [C] all the dear children in [F] Thy tender [C] care,

And [G7] fit us for [C] Heaven to [Dm] live with [G7] Thee [C] there.
