{Intro}
C2   Gsus   C
{Verse 1}
  C                  Em         F
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
    Dm     G/B  C         F              G 
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head
    C                            Em            F
The stars in the bright sky look down where He lay
    Dm     G/B  C      F        G   C
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay
{Verse 2}
    C                      Em    F
The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes
    Dm     G/B  C        F         G 
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes
  C                          Em            F
I love You, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    Dm      G/B  C         F       G   C
And stay by my   side 'til morning is nigh
 
{Bridge}
   F        G   Am
He is here, He is here
     G               F
Precious Jesus, He is here
                  G   Am
The greatest gift we receive
   G             C
Hallelujah, He is here
{Verse 3}
   C                      Em7        F
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask You to stay
      Dm    G/B   C        F          G 
Close by me for - ever and love me, I pray
      C                        Em          F
Bless all the dear children in Your tender care 
    Dm      G/B  C         F         G   C
And take us to   heaven to live with You there
[Repeat Bridge x2]
{Tag}
      C                        Em          F
Bless all the dear children in Your tender care 
    Dm      G/B  C         F         G   C
And take us to   heaven to live with You there

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky
Look 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 You, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
‘Til morning is nigh

He is here, He is here
Precious Jesus, He is here
The greatest gift we receive
Hallelujah, He is here

Be near me, Lord Jesus
I ask You to stay
Close by me forever
And love me, I pray
Bless all the dear children
In Your tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with You there
