(Swee-ee-ee-eet)

Sweet... little Jesus boy-oy-oy
They made You be born in a manger-er
Swee-ee-ee-eet little Ho-oly chi-i-ld
They didn't know who You were

Didn't know You'd come to save us Lord
To take our sins away
Our eyes were bli-i-ind
And we could not see-ee
We didn't know-ow who-oo You were

A long time ago-o
You were bor-orn in a manger, Lor-ordd
Sweet little Je-esus Boy (Sweet Jesus boy)
Now the world treated You mean, Lor-ord
And it's been treatin' me mean too
But that's how things are done now, yeah-eah (Swee-ee-eet)
We didn't know it was You

You done told us how
And we are a-tryin'
Master, You done showed us how (how-ow-ow)
Even when you were dyin' (when you were dyin')
It just seems like we can't do right (do right)
Look how we treated you, yeah-eah
Please, please, forgive us Lord...
We didn't know it was you

Sweet little Jesus boy-oy (Sweet little Je-esu-us)
Born a long time ago-o
Swee-ee-ee-eet little Holy chi-i-ild
We didn't know who-oo You were
