Christmas Eve 2012
Although I’m not a religious person, still, I enjoy all the carols of season. I’m very familiar with first two versus of Away in the Manger, but when I heard the third verse on the radio today, my mind turned to the children of the Sandy Hook School.
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.
