Greg singing "Away in a Manger" while Anthony and Murray play guitars and Jeff sleeps

Away in a Manger is a Christmas song from Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas, Santa's Rockin'! and Go Santa Go!.

Lyrics

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
The little lord Jesus lay down his sweet head
The stars in the night sky look down where he lay
The little lord Jesus asleep in the hay

The cattle a-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

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
