Lyrics:

See the little baby, amen
Lyin' in a manger, amen
On christmas morning,
Amen, amen, amen

See him in the temple, amen
Talking with the elders, amen
Who marveled at his wisdom
Amen, amen, amen

See him by the seaside, amen
Talking with the fishermen, amen
Makin' 'em disciples
Amen, amen, amen

Marchin' to Jerusalem, amen
Wavin' palm branches, amen
In pomp and splendor
Amen, amen, amen

See him in the garden, amen
Talkin' with the father, amen
In deepest sorrow
Amen, amen, amen

Led before Pilate, amen
Then they crucified him, amen
But he rose on easter
Amen, amen, amen

Hallelujah!, amen
He died to save us, amen
But he lives forever!
Amen, amen, amen
