Away In A Manger Chords

   
From: Barrie McCombs 

AWAY IN A MANGER   Time: 3/4   Tenor: D   Bass: C
- One of several variations!

  1        *          4          1
A-way in a manger, no crib for a bed

    57          *          1              *
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head

    1            *                 4             1
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay

    57          1       2m    .  5   1 
The little Lord Jesus a-sleep on the hay


    1          *           4       1
The cattle are lowing, the Baby  a-wakes
    57          *         1         *
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes
  1               *           4             1
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    5          1          2m  .     5   1
And stay by my side until mor-ning  is  nigh

   1             *        4           1
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
      57        1        2m        5
Close by me for-ever and love me I pray
      1            *           4          1
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
    5          1         2m   .    5    1
And fit us for heaven to live with Thee there
