Away in a Manger
"Away in a Manger" er en Christmas Carol fra slutningen af det 19. Århundrede. Det er en meget brugt julesang i de engelsktalende lande. Den mest brugte melodi er af William J. Kirkpatrick.
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head,
The stars in the bright 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 you, Lord Jesus; look down from the sky,
And stay by my side until morning is nigh.
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay
Close by me for ever, and love me, I pray.
Bless all the dear children in your tender care,
And fit us for heaven, to live with you there.
