Amen, good Lord-y, amen, have mercy,
amen, amen, amen. Sing it over.

1 See the baby,
lyin' in a manger
on Christmas mornin'.

2 See Him in the temple
talkin' to the elders
who marveled at His wisdom.

3 See Him at the Jordan
where John was baptizin'
and savin' all sinners.

4 See him at the seaside,
talkin' to the fishermen
and makin' them disciples.

5 Marchin' in Jerusalem,
over palm branches,
in pomp and splendor.

6 See Him in the garden,
prayin' to His Father,
in deepest sorrow.

7 Led before Pilate,
then they crucified Him,
but He rose on Easter.

8 Hallelujah!
He died to save us
and He lives for ever.

*One person sings the stanzas while everyone else continues to sing
