How to Play Away In A Manger

Updated on August 23, 2017

My First Very Easy Christmas Carol Book


How to Play Away In A Manger - A First Carol?

Here is Away In A Manger free music to help you play Away in a Manger. Do you love to hear children singing Away in a Manger in the Nativity Play? I know I do! Away In A Manger is a beautiful Christmas Carol for children to sing. How many of us learned to sing Away In A Manger for our very first school Nativity Play? How many schools these days even HAVE a Nativity Play? Not enough, is my guess - we are certainly happy to take the excuse for giving gifts and feasting, but many are less happy being reminded of the true Christmas message.

Personally, I think that is wrong and in sharing how to play Christmas songs I am hopefully doing my little bit to make sure that Jesus is not forgotten completely as the whole world - Christian and Non-Christian alike - celebrate the birthday of this Prince of Peace.... Read on for the melody and chords of this lovely traditional carol and a few pretty things to remind us of the Nativity itself!

Clicking below will take you to my Lulu page where you can see my carol book for solo guitar.

Christmas - A Time For All To Celebrate? - Unless Your Belief Is Christian?

Some schools do not allow the traditional Christmas Nativity Play any more because they have non-Christian students. Is that right?

Do you think schools have become too secular at Christmas?

Away In A Manger Lyrics

Here are the words of Away In A Manger

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 Thee, Lord Jesus

Look down from the sky

And stay by my side,

Until morning is nigh.

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 fit us for heaven

To live with Thee there
