'Away In A Manger' Matthew West Acoustic Performance

Feel the spirit of Christmas as Matthew West performs the classic hymn ‘Away In A Manger.’ This beloved song is the perfect reminder that our King is the greatest gift of all.

“Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
the little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head;
the stars in the heavens looked down where He lay,
the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.”

Contemporary Christian artist Matthew West has been recording worship music for over two decades. He is a Dove award-winning musician who has given us hits such as ‘Forgiveness’ and ‘Grace Wins.’

Today, he’s performing a stunning, acoustic rendition of ‘Away In A Manger’ from his newest Christmas album, ‘We Need Christmas.’

Just listen as he beautifully belts out these words that we all know and love.

“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.”

The birth of Jesus Christ paved the way for our path into Heaven. As we walk through this Christmas season, let us remember that we’ve already been given the greatest gift of all when God sent down His only Son.

Matthew 2:11 “After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”
