An alternative melody to Away In A Manger. Written for a childrens choir I play piano for. The Tenor Part is optional, as it is doubled in the left hand of the piano. Can be done without piano with SAT

Comments are always welcome, good or bad :)

Of course, there are more lyrics than I have added, one option is thus:

SOPRANOS: Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head. The stars in the sky looked down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes. I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky And stay by my cradle 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.

ALTOS: The herald angels sing, ?Glory to the newborn King; Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!?

By highest Heav?n adored; Christ the everlasting Lord; Late in time, behold Him come, Offspring of a virgin?s womb.

The, Desire of nations, come, Fix in us Thy humble home; Rise, the woman?s conqu?ring Seed, Bruise in us the serpent?s head.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
