Story

 

  Away in a Manger is a classic Christmas carol that I have always loved.  It is written much like a lullaby for children.  The stark comparison of the sweet, innocent baby Jesus and the grown Jesus who lay down on the cross for every one of us, is almost incomprehensible.  When we celebrate Christmas we often forget; or perhaps intentionally block out the fact that this baby was born with the sole purpose of leading us to the Father and dying for our sins. With this in mind, I wanted to update Away in a Manger to be more viable to the adult listener so I added a chorus that ties the two images of Jesus together.
