Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Away In The Manger



Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.


The stars in the bright 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 till 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.
