Away in a Manger ( Luther's Cradle Hymn )

Away in a Manger Lyrics

Download Lyrics

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 poor baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus,
No crying He makes;
I love thee Lord Jesus!
Look down from the sky,
And stay by my cradle,
To watch lullaby.


This song was composed by the reformer Martin Luther.
