first published in 1885, Philadelphia. lyricist of the first two stanzas of the carol unknown. previously ascribed to Martin Luther but since disproved. third stanza, which appeared in 1892, is sometimes ascribed to Dr. John Thomas McFarland, though it's more likely contributed by Charles H. Gabriel. a later variation aka "Cradle Song" was written in 1895 by William J. Kirkpatrick which is an adaptation of the melody originally composed in 1837 by Jonathan E. Spilman to "Sweet Afton", with Gabriel's lyrics in the third stanza. Thus, there are two different melodies for "Away in a Manger". Each setting has a harmony version for S, A, T, B.
