Get into the Christmas spirit as Leaf Colors sings the traditional hymn “Away in a Manger.” This solo acoustic track was originally recorded in one take and was unofficially released solely on MySpace in December of 2009 for a short while. Several years later, drums were added and the track was mixed, and in 2020 it was finally mastered and given artwork for its official release in time for the holiday season.


Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head
The stars in the sky look 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 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
