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
