Sweet, little Jesus boy
They made You be born in a manger-er
Sweet little Holy child
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 blind
And we could not see
We didn't know who You were

A long time ago
You were born in a manger, Lord
Sweet little Jesus Boy (Sweet Jesus boy)
Now the world treated You mean, Lord
And it's been treatin' me mean too
But that's how things are done now, yeah (Sweet)
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
Please, please, forgive us Lord
We didn't know it was you

Sweet little Jesus boy-oy (Sweet little Jesus)
Born a long time ago-o
Sweet little Holy child
We didn't know who You were
