The power and conviction in this traditional spiritual is such a poignant, encapsulated depiction of Jesus' interaction with those He came to save. There is so much regret but also repentance, remorse and beauty in this beautiful arrangement by my friend and colleague, David Kauahikaua.

Lyrics

Sweet Little Jesus Boy
(R. MacGimsey) Arr. D. Kauahikaua

Sweet little Jesus boy born in a manger. Sweet little holy child. We didn’t know who you was.
Long time ago you was born. Born in a manger low, a sweet little Jesus boy.
Didn’t know You come to save us, Lord, to take our sins away.
Our eyes was blind, we couldn’t see, we didn’t know who you was.

You done told us how. We is tryin’. Master, you done showed us how even when You’s dyin’
World treat You mean, Lord. Treat me mean, too, but that’s how things is down here.
We didn’t know who you was.

Just seem like we can’t do right. Look how we treated You, but please, Sir, forgive us, Lord
We didn’t know who You was.
