Christmas Songs – Away In A Manger lyrics

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 night 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

    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.
