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.
Away In a Manger No Crib for A Bed Lyrics
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.
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.
