What Child Is This

Vanessa WilliamsBuy this song

What child is this who laid to rest
on Mary's lap asleeping 
whom angels breed with anthems sweet 
while shepherds watch our keeping

This, this is Christ the king
whom shepherds guard and angels sing

Haste, haste bring him lord
the babe the son of Mary

So bring him incense, bring him gold
come pleasant king to him
The king of kings salvations brings
let loving hearts enthrone him

Raise, raise the son on high
the virgin sings a lullaby 

Joy, joy for Christ is born
the babe was son of Mary 

What child is this who laid to rest
on Mary's lap asleeping
whom angels breed with anthems sweet
while shepherds watch our keeping

Raise, raise the son on high
the virgin sings a lullaby 

Joy, joy for Christ is born
the babe was son of Mary
