"Away in the Manger" as written by and Jonathan E. Spillman....
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 take us to heaven
To live with Thee there

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus (sweet, sweet jesus)
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay (look down, look down, look down)
The little Lord Jesus (little Jesus)
Asleep on the hay
(wonderful counselour, everlasting father, prince of peace)
(Oh yeah, sweet Jesus, thank ya, thank ya, for your good ness, for your love, unto us a son is born, unto us a child is given, thank you, all I want for Christmas, give me Jesus)

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus (sweet, sweet jesus)
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay (look down, look down, look down)
The little Lord Jesus (little Jesus)
Asleep on the hay
