"Away in a Manger" as written by Fred Bock, James R. Murray and J. E. Spilman....
Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the Heaven
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love You, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle,
'Till morning is nigh.

Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the King of Israel
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the King of Israel

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 bid us for heaven
To live with You there

Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the King of Israel
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the King of Israel
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the King of Israel
