Away in a Manger (All Glory to Jesus)


Verse 1
Away in a manger a baby is born
The Sovereign of heaven whom angels adore
Is wrapped in the weakness of our mortal frame
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

Verse 2
Away in a manger a servant is born
Made nothing to raise up the hopeless and poor
With grace as His burden and love as His yoke
The gentle Lord Jesus will shepherd our souls

Verse 3
Away in a manger a Savior is born
The crown He’ll be given will pierce Him with thorns
The King will be cursed with our sin and our shame
The blameless Lord Jesus will die in our place

Verse 4
Away in a manger a Lion is born
The darkness will tremble at His mighty roar
His mercy will triumph and death will be slain
The risen Lord Jesus forever will reign

All glory to Jesus forever
We lift high the name of our Savior
All glory to Jesus forever
We lift high the name of our Savior
