Another Music Post

We bought the new James Taylor Christmas CD and have not been disappointed! Leave it to JT (not Justin Timberlake, you crazy reader!) to take even the traditional and make it fun!

Anyway - On his CD there is a song called "Some Children See Him" which I had never heard in any sense before. I googled it this morning and found out that it's a "Traditional Poem" that apparently missed my tradition. It's a great poem and so I will share:


Some Children See Him
By Alfred Burt

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!

Again, just thought I would share!

I'll post again soon. I'm not avoiding posting, there's just a lot happening right now!
