From the recording Fa LA LA LA La

Lyrics

Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little lord jesus laid down his sweet head
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay
The little lord jesus asleep on the hay.

They’re waiting x2

Waiting, they’re waiting

Waiting for you x4

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 side until morning is nigh.

They’re waiting x2

Waiting, they’re waiting

Waiting for you x4

Rise x 21

Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,

And take us to heaven, to live with thee there.
And take us to heaven, to live with thee there

Public Domain - Christmas carol first published in the late nineteenth century and used widely throughout the English-speaking world. In Britain, it is one of the most popular carols; a 1996 Gallup Poll ranked it joint second. Although it was long claimed to be the work of German religious reformer Martin Luther, the carol is now thought to be wholly American in origin.

Arrangement by Ashley Ballard and Carlos Villalobos
