On the Ninth Day of Christmas: Be Near Me, Lord Jesus

Philharmonia Orchestra, UK

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus lays down His sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky look down where he lay;
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

St. John's College Choir

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 say by my side until morning is nigh.

King's College Choir

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.

Anthony Deaton, guitar
