Original[]

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed

The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head

The stars in the sky look 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

Take us to heaven to live with Thee there

VeggieTales Version[]

Junior Asparagus: 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.

Lisa Asparagus: 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 cradle till morning is nigh.

Junior Asparagus: And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Merry Christmas, Mom.
