Some Children See Him

Wow!  How’s this for a multi-cultural look at Christmas morning??  I love it!  It is a poem titled “Some Children See Him,” and it’s so sweet!

Some children see Him lily white

the infant 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 (with dark and heavy hair!)

Some children see Him almond-eyed

This 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, ah! they love Him so!

The children in each different place

Will see the Baby Jesus’ face

Like theirs but bright with heav’nly 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!
