Little Donkey

Little donkey, little donkey on the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards with your precious load
Been a long time, little donkey, through the winters night
don't give up now, little donkey, 
Bethlehem’s in sight

Ring out those bells tonight 
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight 
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Little donkey, little donkey, had a heavy day
Little donkey, carry Mary safely on her way  
Away in a manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed

The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head

The stars in the sky look down where He lay

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay


The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes

The 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
