“Some Children See Him”

30 December 2011

For this, the sixth day of Christmas, one of the most beautiful (and most sound) modern Christmas songs, performed by Carolina’s son, the ever-wonderful James Taylor.

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,
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, ah! 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!
