Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed,
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky

    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 in 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 the cradle till 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.

    The begining of the Carol is a narration of a story, not directly addressing the Lord, but, instead, addressing the listener. The refrain "I love thee Lord Jesus, look down from the sky, and stay by my cradle 'till morning is nigh" begins a personal message addressed to the Lord, from the child (or singer) of the Carol. The balance of the Carol is directly from the singer addresing the Lord. Therefore, the quotation marks are appropriate. "Thee" not (the) is the expression of Love to our Lord.

    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 the lord jesus
    Look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle
    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
