Lyrics to Zacchaeus, a children’s song about the short tax collector who was determined to see Jesus
Zacchaeus was a wee little man,
A wee little man was he.
He climbed up in the sycamore tree,
The Savior for to see.
And when the Savior passed that way,
He looked up in the tree,
And He said,
“Zacchaeus, you come down from there;
For I’m going to your house today,
for I’m going to your house today.”
And Zacchaeus came down from that tree,
And he said,
“What a better man I’ll be.
I’ll give my money to the poor.
What a better man I’ll be.
What a better man I’ll be.”
