Away In a Manger, No Crib for a Bed – A Classic Christmas Lullaby & Carol

Away In a Manger No Crib for A Bed Lyrics

Martin Luther

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 till morning is nigh.

Away In a Manger Story

Martin Luther has given us another Christmas hymn — at least it is commonly attributed to him — the ”Cradle Hymn,” which is a marvelously sweet lullaby.

This hymn is very short; but it is very dear to the little ones, who without exception soon learn to sing and to love it.

The above is distinctly a “cradle hymn.”

It is so simple, so evangelical and so beautiful that even if the critics cannot agree as to its authorship, we certainly are unanimous as to its use.
