Zacchaeus was a wee little man
And a wee little man was he
He climbed up in a sycamore tree
For the Lord, he wanted to see.

And as the Saviour passed that way
He looked up in that 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”

But a happy man was he
For he has seen the Lord that day,
And a happy man was he
And a very happy man was he.
