Rebecca St. James — Sweet Little Jesus Boy lyrics

Sweet little Jesus boy, they made You be born in a manger
Sweet little Holy Child,
We didn't know who You were.
Sweet little Jesus boy, they made You be born in a manger
Sweet little Holy Child,
We didn't know who You were.
We didn't know who You were.

Didn't know You'd come to save us Lord;
To take our sins away,
Our eyes were blind we could not see,
We didn't know who You were.
We didn't know who You were.

Long time ago You were born
Born in a manger low sweet little Jesus boy.
The world treats You mean Lord, treats me mean too
But that's how it is down here;
We don't know who You are.

You have told us how, we are trying.
Master You have shown us how even when You were dying.
Just seem like we can't do right, look how we treated You.
But please Sir, forgive us Lord
We didn't know it was You.
We didn't know it was You. (x3)
Sweet little Jesus boy born long time ago
Sweet little Holy Child,
We didn't know who You were.
