Away in a manger • No crib for His bed • The little Lord Jesus • Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky • Looked down where He lay • The little Lord Jesus • Asleep on the hay
The cattle are lowing • The poor Baby wakes • But little Lord Jesus • No crying He makes
Away in a Manger is one of my favorite carols. It presents a beautiful picture of the baby Jesus in a stable with animals. This is the classic image of the nativity, but is this what it was really like?
