Original text in yellow, anagram in pink.

An anagram using Richard Grantham's modified Christmas carol text.

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus lay down his dear head.
That star in the heavens shone down as he lay,
This rare little Saviour asleep on the hay.

When cattle start lowing, that baby awakes,
But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.
I love thee, Lord Jesus! Look down from on high,
And stay by my side until dawn doth draw nigh.

Come near, my Lord Jesus; I beg thee to stay
Close to me for always, and love me, I pray.
Bless all cherished children in thy loving care,
And match us for heaven, to dwell with thee there.

LINUS: Charlie Brown, I know what Christmas really means.

Cue lights, please?

Herders watched fields and flock. An angel came; the Lord's glory shone about them; they were very afraid. The angel said to them, "Believe, ye! Joy to you, and joy to all alive! News: born today in David's city: a just Saviour, Jesus the Lord. See then a barn, these linens and the babe." Many of the heavenly host praised the Lord with His angel, and said, "Glory to the Lord, with good in the world to men." (Luke Two)

That's what Christmas really means, Charlie Brown.
