Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Away in a manger
A little light now shines
I look into your eyes for the very first time
You carried me far
On feet that burn and chafe
So I could cry here, whole and safe

[Chorus]
Oh mama sit and rest
You’re doing all you can
Lay your head in papa’s lap
And leave tomorrow to no plan
My little love will lift you up
Until the day they see
There is that of God in me

[Verse 2]
Four walls and a roof
Mark our sacred little place
Only one had found some room and shown us grace
So many other travelers
Laying down their fear
Come to gaze in wonder here

[Chorus]
Oh mama sit and rest
You’re doing all you can
Lay your head in papa’s lap
And leave tomorrow to no plan
My little love will lift you up
Until the day they see
There is that of God in me

[Verse 3]
The eyes of the world rest on
You and I tonight
The burden of their hopes weighs heavy on your mind
I’ll carry it with you when
I grow strong and tall
I’ll be a guiding star for all

[Chorus]
Oh mama sit and rest
You’re doing all you can
Lay your head in papa’s lap
And leave tomorrow to no plan
My little love will lift you up
Until the day they see
There is that of God in me

[Outro]
Away in a manger
A little light now shines
