Ave! Ave! Away in a Manger TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS SONG 1. 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. 2. 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 till morning is nigh. 3. Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay Close by me forever and love me, I pray!

The old “Sisters” raised sand when they first heard the band, ’Way down in Georgia; The preacher did rare and the deacons did stare At the young darkies prancing. The band played so sweet that nobody could eat, ’Twas so entrancing; So the church folks agreed ’twas not a sinful deed, And joined in with the rest.
