Our Sunday School children (age 3 through 6th grade) will be singing two songs at our 7PM Christmas Eve worship service. Please encourage your child(ren) to practice these lyrics. You may also find the youtube links helpful:
Away in a Manger -- (youtube: https://youtu.be/5sgcyaZeYHg)
Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky looked 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 'til 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 take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.
In a Little Stable -- (youtube: https://youtu.be/p_GoPbuAHoY)
In a little stable, far across the sea
Was a little baby, just like you and me.
Not a bed or cradle, not a pillow deep
But a lowly manger, was His place to sleep.
Shepherds stood around Him, angels watched with care
For this babe was Jesus, lying, smiling there.
Oh, I love this Jesus, who was little then
For He surely loves me, little though I am.
