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
didn't know who you were

Didn't know you'd come to save us
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 (X4)

You have told us how we are trying
Master you have shown us how even when you were dying
Just seems like we can't do right, look how we treated you
But please sir, forgive us Lord
We didn't know it was you
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
