Here is a peacful version of the Carol
performed by
Montana's Pianist
"George Winston"

(2.9MB)
George Winston grew up on the Plains and Forests of Montana. His love of Montana's seasons are reflected in all his music, including this interpretation.
Written by
Alfred Shaddick Burt (1920-1954)
who grew up in the shadow of his fathers Episcopal Church in Pontiac, Michigan. The family enjoyed their campsite on the shores of Middle Island Point. Surely Alfred's experience with nature influence the innocence of today's Carol as the innocence of children seeing Jesus as lily white while others see him bronzed and brown.

LYRICS
Some Children see Him lily white,
the Baby 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 heavín to earth some down;
Some Children see Him bronzed and brown,
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 Maryís Son to whom we pray;
Some Children see Him dark as they,
and ah! They love Him too!

The Children in each different place
will see the Baby Jesusí face
Like theirs, but bright with heavínly grace,
and filled with holy light.
O lay aside each earthly thing,
and with thy heart as offering,
Come worship now the Infant King,
ítis love thatís born tonight!
