Sweet Little Jesus Boy

December 2006: ... holy innocents

Sweet little Jesus boy
They made you be born in a manger
Sweet little holy child
We didnít know who you were
Didnít know you'd come to save us Lord
To take our sins away
Our eyes were blind, we could not see
We didnít know who you were

Long time ago
You were born
Born in a manger Lord
Sweet little Jesus boy
The world treats you mean Lord
Treats me mean too
But thatís how things are down here
We donít know who you are

You have told us how
We are trying
Master you have shown us how
Even when you were dying
Just seems like we canít do right
Look how we treated you
But please Sir forgive us Lord
We didnít know it was you

Sweet little Jesus boy
Born a long time ago
Sweet little holy child
We didnít know who you were
