Away In The Manger Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Rocky Mountain Christmas

Away in a manger, no crib for his bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head
The stars in the 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 Thee, Lord Jesus look down from the sky
And stay by my side until morning is nigh

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there

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

Yes,this poem underscores the facts about the nativity of the child jesus.Its very true that the vulnerability and helplessness of the child jesus evokes the same in every little child born to this world. If we only gave this fact a thought, a far deeper reflection,we would revere childhood and divinity for this is what we are.
Long live children and childhood.
