Away in a Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a 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 cradle till 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 fit us for heaven to live with thee there.

I can almost still sing that a capella to this day.

Merry Christmas.

I love that song :) Merry Christmas!

Hope you are feeling better and running is going well, too.

This makes me bawl EVERY TIME I try to sing it. And not just because I sound like a castrated cat either.

Another song that gets me is "Little Jesus sweetly sleep" Awwwman!

Hope you had a really wonderful Christmas.
