some children see him lyrics – don moen

“some children see him”

some children see him lily white
the baby jesus born this night
some children see him lily white
with tresses soft and fair
some children see him bronzed and brown
the lord of heav’n to earth come down
some children see him bronzed and brown
with dark and heavy hair
some children see him almond-eyed
this savior whom we kneel beside
some children see him almond-eyed
with skin of golden hue
some children see him dark as they
sweet mary’s son to whom we pray
some children see him dark as they
and, oh!
they love him, too!
the children in each different place
will see the baby jesus’ face
like theirs, but bright with heavenly grace
and filled with holy light
o lay aside each earthly thing
and with thy heart as offering
come worship now the infant king
this love that’s born tonight!
