Christmas song: Away in a manger / Geen wiegje als rustplaats

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 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 'til morning is neigh.

Believe me, Lord Jesus, I asked thee to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray
Bless all of the dear children in thy tender care
And take us to heaven to live with thee there...

Most of the variations have an intimate character, like this song. I most like the last couplet: 'Lord Jesus, I aks thee to stay, close by me forever.'

The crescendo in de last variation is inspired on 'and takes us to heaven to live with Thee there'!

I hope you will enjoy listening!
