Feel-Good Friday: Some Children See Him

I know it isn't Tuesday Tunage or anything, but I had my Christmas Playlist on shuffle and totally forgot I had this song on there. I loved it the first time I heard James Taylor sing it and HAD to have it.

The message is that for Christians, no matter where you are in the world, if you believe, you believe. And if I believe, I believe. It doesn't matter how we see Him in our eyes, it's the belief that binds us. Enjoy.


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 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, 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!

'Tis love that's born tonight!
