Away in a Manger was first published in an 1885 Lutheran Sunday School book by James R. Murray (March 7, 1841 - March 10, 1905), but the author of the first two stanzas is unknown.

The tune commonly used in the United Kingdom is by William J. Kirkpatrick and was first published in 1895. It is certain that stanza three was added in 1904 by Dr. John McFarland of New York City.

This arrangement with open bass notes is playable by any pre-grade 1 guitarist who can cope with three sharps! It could be capoed at fret five for a more suitable singing key for children and played for Primary/Elementary children to sing along to in a nativity play.

The TAB may help those less confident!
