SWEET LITTLE JESUS BOY (Robert MacGimsey (m & l) published 1934) Lyrics as released by Natalie Cole with the London Symphony Orchestra 1999 ‘The Magic Of Christmas’ Sweet little Jesus boy They made you be born in a manger, my Lord Sweet little holy child We didn't know who you was. We didn't know you come to save us Lord To take our sins away Our eyes were blind, we just could not see We didn't know it was you. Ohhh, you have told us how How we are tryin’, yes Master, master, you have shown us how Even when you were dyin’. Well, just seems like we can't do right Look how we treated you But please oh please Sir, forgive us Lord ‘Cause we didn't know it was you. Sweet little Jesus boy They made you be born in a manger, my Lord Sweet little holy child We didn't know who you was. NOTES: Robert MacGimsey, an American composer, was most famous for originating this particular song. It was written as a African American spiritual.
