Away in a manger,
No crib for His 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 poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side,
'Til 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 take us to heaven
To live with Thee there

Michelle this is beauitful and perfect. May I cut and paste (I'll reference you). I was quiet on both blogs - I just didn't know what to say...nothing seemed right...

My mom told me how she was singing this song and had to just stop... and catch her self and not cry if she could help it.

It is perfect....and so...if I may...I'm going to also share these perfect lyrics which, like EVERYTHING in my life now, means something different... means too much.

Love to you as this year gracefully closes...
