Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

65. Away in a Manger

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.
