25 Songs of Christmas: Day 16 – Away In A Manger

I don’t know why I always associate this song with Christmas plays, maybe because we sang it in some many of them throughout my childhood, or maybe it’s just well suited to children in general. Either way, we had out Church Christmas play (more on that tomorrow) and I think that working with the youth and children was the best medicine for me right now and I wanted to hold on to that energy as long as I could.

It’s only been in listening to the version I chose for this blog that I realized how comforting the simple song is in this weekend’s larger context. I hope you too can find some peace in this children’s carol.
