away in a manger video

We are planning for Christmas and would love to involve you or your kids! We'd love to create a video of our congregation singing Away in a Manger. There are two tracks listed below - one with a vocal track and one without a vocal track.  

  • Please sing the whole song (or have your kids sign the whole song) and record it with just your vocals while wearing earbuds.  
  • Please record it in landscape style (with your phone to the side) and email it to Dakota ( 
  • Wear something plain in color! 
  • Our deadline is November 8!
  • Questions? Email:

Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky
Look 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

Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And fit us for heaven to live with thee there
