 G                   G*         Am
Away in a manger, No crib for a bed,
    D           G          Am   Am7 C     D
The little Lord Jesus, Lay down His sweet head.


                                  [055430]  
    G                               G*            Am
The stars in the bright sky, Looked down where He lay
    D           G       Am    Am7 Am/D  G
The little Lord Jesus, Asleep on  the   hay 


                         
    G                      G*        Am
The cattle are lowing, the poor baby wakes
    D           G         Am Am7 C  D
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes



  G                           G*            Am
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, Look down from the sky
    D          G            Am  Am7 Am/D  G
And stay by my cradle, 'til morning is    nigh 



   G                      G*           Am
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask  Thee to stay
      D        G         Am   Am7 C  D
Close by me forever, And love me  I  pray



      G                         G*         Am
Bless all the dear children, In Thy tender care
    D          G          Am   Am7  Am/D G
And take us to heaven, To live with Thee there


Happy Holidays! LLG ♥
