Thread Name: Origins: AMEN (Jester Hairston)
Subject: ADD Version: AMEN
Now that I'm back home with my songbooks, I found another version:
AMEN
(Jester Hairston)

See the Baby... (Amen)
Sleepin' in the manger... (Amen)
On Christmas Morning'... (Amen Amen, Amen)

See Him at the Temple...
Talkin' with the elders...
Who marvelled at his wisdom!

See Him at the riverside ...
Talkin' to the fishermen...
And makin' them disciples!...

First He came a preachin'...
Then He came a teachin'...
Tellin' them disciples...

See Him in the garden...
Talkin' to the Father
In deepest sorrow...

Went before Pilate...
Then they crucified Him...
But He rose on Easter!...
