The kids need to listen to their CD this week to learn the words to AWAY IN THE MANGER. Please do this in preparation for Sunday's concert.

There are 3 verses to AWAY IN THE MANGER:

Verse 1: Away in the 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.
Verse 2: 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 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.
Don't forget the additional performance on Sunday morning, December 18th from 10:30-10:45 a.m. in the church atrium. Please let us know if you CANNOT be there.
