Away In A Manger (MusicBox)

Here’s something a little different. I’ve changed the timbre from Piano to Music Box. Changes the whole feel of this song, don’t you think?

Lyrics: Unknown, v3 – John Thomas McFarland
Music: James R. Murray

Away in a manger, no crib for His 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 in 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 the 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.

    I love your music box treatment of this old Christmas song. Nice. I downloaded just now and will add it to my listening selection for the holidays.

    I was on holiday at Cameron Highlands, Malaysia and visiting one of the flower gardens there. They were playing Christmas songs done in this fashion – completely music box sound. Back in Singapore, I even managed to purchase a two-CD set entitled “Music Box Christmas”. The Music Box sound gives a nice nostalgic feel to the songs.
