Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

641. Away in a manger, no crib for a bed

1 Away in a manger, No crib for a 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 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.

3 Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay
Close by me for ever, And love me, I pray;
Bless all the dear children In thy tender care,
And fit us for heaven, To live with thee there.

Amen.
