Children's Chorus - SA with piano; 1995

view score

text: J. B. Ashton

 

If I were just like you,
And you were just like me,
How could Jesus show us all
How He shares His love so free?
Tho' your skin be dark or fair,
Tho' brown your eyes, or blue;
Tho' blonde or black your hair,
He's still your Friend so true.

And more than Friend!
He calls Himself your Brother–
My Brother, too;
And so, with one another
We are one family:
Our lives are joined together
In one family:
All children of the King!

If I were just like you,
And your were just like me,
How could Jesus show us all
How He shares His love so free?
Tho' your home be near the sea,
On plain or mountain tall,
God shares your home with you,
He's still the friend of all.

Around the world
His children speak their own tongues;
They pray to Him,
And sing to Him their own songs
As one family
Whose hearrs are knit together
In one family
All children of the King!

If I were just like you,
And you were just like me,
How could Jesus show us all
How He shares His love so free?
Tho' your skin be dark or fair,
Tho' brown your eyes, or blue;
Tho' blonde or black your hair,
He's still in love with you!
