Away In A Manger 

(Luke 2:6-16) Away in a manger, no crib for a bed 
A tiny new baby lay down His sweet head. 
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay, 
The little Lord Jesus (Matt. 1:21) …asleep on the hay 
…Away in a manger 

The cattle are lowing, the child awakes, 
The Offspring of David (Jer. 23:5, Matt. 1:6, Rev. 22:16), no crying He makes; 
Who would have thought that the Ancient of Days (Dan. 7:9-11/ Rev. 1:13-16) 
could be found as a baby… asleep on the hay 
…Away in a manger 

The Hope of all Israel (Gen. 17:19, Num. 24:17, Jer. 17:13, Matt. 1:2) 
…Her crowned Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6) 
Her Passover Lamb (Luke 22:19,20, I Cor. 5:7, John 19:14) 
…Her Eternal High Priest (Heb 3:1, Heb. 4:14-16, 7:1) 
Was born in a stable one Bethlehem (Micah 5:2, Luke 2:1-7) day 
Yeshua (Matt. 1:21), Messiah (Dan. 9:25; Jn. 1:41; 4:25)… The Life (I John 1:2, John 14:6), Truth (John 17:17, John 1:1, 14)…The Way… (John 14:6) 

…The Way in a manger… 
Away in a manger 
The Way in a Manger 
Away in a Manger... 

A tiny new baby, asleep on the hay....
