Words: Verses 1 & 2, anon­y­mous, in Lit­tle Child­ren’s Book for Schools and Fam­i­lies, by J. C. File (Phil­a­del­phia, Penn­syl­van­ia: Evan­gel­ic­al Lu­ther­an Church in North Amer­i­ca, 1885). Some sourc­es show the au­thor as Mar­tin Lu­ther; this at­tri­bu­tion (prob­ab­ly in­cor­rect) is based on the ti­tle “Lu­ther’s Cra­dle Hymn,” giv­en to these words by the com­pos­er, James Mur­ray, in his Dainty Songs for Lit­tle Lads and Lass­es (Cin­cin­na­ti, Ohio: The John Church Co., 1887). Verse 3 is by John T. Mc­Far­land (1851-1913).

Music: Mueller, James R. Murray, 1887. Al­tern­ate tune:

Cradle Song, Wil­liam J. Kirk­pat­rick, 1895

The lyrics and music are very similar to a very old Austrian (Tyrolian) folk song from the Brixon Valley, called ‘Es Wird Scho Glei Dumpa,’ which in German is ‘Es Wird Schon Gleich Dunkel.’ The first verse is roughly translated as:

It will be dark,

It is already night,

Drum I come to thee,

My Saviour to watch.

We sing a little song

The young child, the small one.

You may not sleep so,

I hear you cry only.

Refrain:

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Sleep sweet loving heart’s child.

This was a lullaby and folk song in Austria long before attributed to Martin Luther, but was first published in 1913 in a collection named ‘Tyrolian Real Tracks,’ and attributed to the Austrian dialect poet and Catholic clergyman, Anton Reid.

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

The stars in the bright sky
Looked 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
