Sweet little Jesusboy,
they made you be born in a manger,
Sweet little holy Child,
we didn't know who you was,
didn't know you come to save us Lord,
to take our sins away,
our eyes was blind, we could not see,
we didn't know who you was.

You done told us how,
we's a-trying,
Master you showed us how,
Even when you's died.
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.
