Christian Christmas Music Day 9 – Ed Ames

***Until Christmas Day, I will be highlighting one song that defines Christmas for me and my family. Hopefully, some of these songs will be an inspiration to you and your family as well.

Day 9 – Ed Ames – A voice from the 60’s

Christmas with Ed Ames Song – Away in a manger

Away in a manger
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head

The stars in the sky
Look down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
‘Til 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 take us to Heaven
To live with Thee there


My love for Hip Hop is well documented but sometimes you just need to bring it back to the classics.  Ed Ames has that kind of voice.  When you hear it, memories of the a different time comes.  Many of you have never heard of Ed Ames but after hearing this son, I hope you give him a try.  Ed always brings back the times when life was just a little more simple.  Merry Christmas to all!  =)  -PJSLB
