I chose this song for our contest because, this is all about the Birth of Jesus..whenever He was born doesn't matter, the fact is He was born, changed the world, healed the sick, and the lame, made a blind man see! Christmas isn't about trees, or snow, or presents, although there's nothing wrong with those aspects of celebration, they should never eclipse the Glory of God...and mankind's only salvation...with the world in a chaotic turmoil, we need to turn to God and pray for Christ's return soon!

I love this wonderful song, one of my Christmas favourites....the reference to children in this carol is so appropriate, for as Jesus once said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." I think of my sons when they were little and now of my grand daughters when I sing this, so it always makes me smile :). This is also my favourite of the two different melodies used for this song. Struggling with a cold, but I felt like singing today.... "Away in a Manger" is a Christmas carol first published in 1885 in Philadelphia and used widely throughout the English-speaking world. In Britain it is one of the most popular carols, a 1996 Gallup Poll ranking it joint second. The song was first published with two verses in an Evangelical Lutheran Sunday School collection, Little Children's Book for Schools and Families (1885), edited by James R. Murray (1841–1905), where it simply bore the title "Away in a Manger" and was set to a tune called "St. Kilda," credited to J.E. Clark. The third stanza, "Be near me, Lord Jesus" was first printed in Gabriel's Vineyard Songs (1892), where it appeared in a version by Charles H. Gabriel. The entire song was titled "Cradle Song". Consequently, there are two different melodies for "Away In A Manger".
