The Perry Como Christmas Album - 1968

Some Children See Him
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!
