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 heaven to earth come down

Some children see him bronzed and brown

With dark and heavy hair


Some children see him almond eyed

The saviour whom we kneel beside

Some children see him almond eyed

With skin of yellow 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

Tis love that’s born tonight
