I'm slowly learning how to play the penny whistle and I thought it would be fun to do a sort of advent of Christmas carols to give me something to work towards. Each day of December, up to Christmas day, I will post a video of myself playing a Christmas carol on the penny whistle.

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.
The stars in the night sky looked down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
But 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.

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.
