Away in a Manger – Flip Chart & Lyrics

This post may also be available in: English Español

This Away in a Manger flip chart is perfect for the holidays. This beloved Primary song is probably my favorite of the Children’s Songbook Christmas Songs. It’s a perfect one to teach to the kids, too, as it’s in the Hymn book and a popular one sung throughout the Christmas season.

The kids will love knowing this song when it comes up for caroling, in sacrament meeting, and at other times through the season. With this colorful and condensed Away in a Manger Flip Chart you’ll be able to help the kids quickly learn the song, even if you’re short on weeks to teach it!

Plus, the fun echo chorus is easier to lead with the color-coded parts! Just assign one side of the room to red and the other to green and then switch!

Away in a Manger lyrics

Away in a Manger Lyrics

Verse 1:
Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head;
The stars in the heavens looked down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

Alseep (Asleep) Asleep (Asleep)
Asleep, the Savior in a stall!
Asleep (Asleep) Asleep (Asleep)
Asleep, the Lord of all.

Verse 2:
The cattle are lowing, the poor baby wakes;
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.

Verse 3:
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.

Black and White Flip Chart

While I LOVE using color on my flip charts, sometimes you need something ink saving or just simple to get the job done. If you are flipping a notebook over the podium or presenting this song in the chapel, you might choose to use this more simplistic flip chart.

It’s still just 1-page per verse with as large of font as that would allow. I found that more pages just made it confusing when to flip and a lot of excess pages to deal with when I was a music leader, so I’m all about simplicity! It’s also in landscape orientation, to match the other flip charts in the series!
