Hi !
There is the Arya Manjushri Mula-Kalpa, a buddhist tantra about Manjushri, that is available in sanskrit in the internet. There was a threelingual book about Manjushri Namasangiti in the 1980's, I don't know if it is still in print. The Sanskrit Buddhist Literature of Nepal by Rajendrala Mitra contains Namasangiti, it is in print.

I believe this is the Manjusri mantra in Sanskrit:

oṃ a ra pa ca na dhīḥ

A is a door to the insight that all dharmas are unproduced from the very beginning (ādya-anutpannatvād);
RA is a door to the insight that all dharmas are without dirt (rajas);
PA is a door to the insight that all dharmas have been expounded in the ultimate sense (paramārtha);
CA is a door to the insight that the decrease (cyavana) or rebirth of any dharma cannot be apprehended, because all dharmas do not decrease, nor are they reborn;
NA is a door to the insight that the names [i.e. nāma] of all dharmas have vanished; the essential nature behind names cannot be gained or lost.

There are many praises to Mañjushri in tibetan, for example there is Je Tsong Khapa's The Ocean of the Clouds of Praises to Guru Mañjughosha,
I don't know if there are many that have been translated from sanskrit with the original sanskrit remaining.
Did you find the Mañjushri Stotra in the digital sanskrit buddhist canon?
