Behind the Song: Zacchaeus Was a Wee Little Man

Zacchaeus was a Wee Little Man is another popular children’s song. It’s a great way for children to learn the story of Zacchaeus. After all a song stays in your memory much

Zacchaeus was a wee little man...but the Lord he wanted to see

Zacchaeus was a wee little man…but the Lord he wanted to see

longer than a story.

The story recounts the story of Zacchaeus which is found in Luke 19:1-10. The song recounts Zacchaeus desire to see Jesus, so he climbs a sycamore tree and Jesus tells him to come down because “I’m going to your house today.”

I’ve sadly been unable to discover where the Children’s song actually originated, though.
