Here’s a holiday post for you…

Away in a Manger makes a fantastic lullaby. I have sung it to all three of my children, and while it’s holiday appropriate this time of year, the 3rd verse is especially good for singing little ones to sleep all year-long.

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.

Though I must admit, in my head, I always add “but not for a long, long time”.
