‘Away In A Manger’ Andrea Bocelli, Matteo Bocelli and Virginia Bocelli Christmas Hymn

‘Away In A Manger’ Andrea Bocelli, Matteo Bocelli and Virginia Bocelli Christmas Hymn

World-renowned musician Andrea Bocelli was joined by family members for an utterly delightful performance of a beloved Christmas tune, “Away in a Manger.”

The world was changed forever after Mary gave birth to that precious baby boy in a stable in Bethlehem all those years ago. Following word of the newborn King’s birth, several traveled, near and far, to get a glimpse of that child, wrapped up in swaddling clothes, lying in a manager. Christ’s birth was the moment that gave hope to the entire world. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, Andrea Bocelli is joined by his children – Virginia and Matteo – for a lovely performance of “Away in the Manger.” Of course, it’s the classic Christmas hymn about the child born that evening. 

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

While “Away in a Manger” is a song that many are likely able to recite completely from memory, it does not and has not gotten old. The beautiful lyrics about the baby sent to Earth to save mankind from sin are full of love, painting a beautiful picture of the newborn King. “Away in a Manger” is always, and likely will continue to be a popular tune every Christmas season. 

In addition to the lovely lyrics, the video is also a sight to behold. Andrea plays the piano and shoulders singing responsibilities with his daughter, Virginia. The two of them sit at the piano with a dazzling display of bright, festively decorated Christmas trees resting behind them. Also, throughout the video, viewers are treated to a perfect, serene and breathtaking winter scene – snow-covered mountains and falling snow along the ocean. 

The Bocelli family rendition of “Away in a Manger” is one that is more than worth a few listens. 

Luke 2:7 “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
