More about Sherrie Boren:
I grew up singing around the piano and guitar with my family. I learned chord progressions from my dad and harmony from my mom. I have enjoyed making music ever since, whether on the piano or the violin, in a choir or an orchestra. As I worked toward a degree in piano performance at BYU, I discovered a love for composing and improvising. It wasn't until several years later, when I had three small children, that I decided to try writing a song for church. I enjoyed it so much that I kept right on doing it.
Song background:

This is a late-intermediate/early-advanced piano solo arrangement of "Away in a Manger." I wrote this arrangement in December 2020, at the close of a challenging year. The music is meant to reflect the feeling of stillness and peace that is found in the Savior, even amid all the commotion and strife that surrounds us. The text of the third verse was especially poignant in my mind as I selected harmonies for this arrangement:

"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 fit us for heaven to live with thee there." (anon., ca. 1883, Philadelphia)
