What Child is This?
Verse: What Child is this who laid to rest On Mary's lap is sleeping? Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet While shepherds watch are keeping? Verse: Why lies He in such mean estate Where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christians, fear, for sinners here The silent Word is pleading. Chorus: This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste, to bring Him laud The Babe, the Son of Mary. Verse: So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh Come, peasant, king to own Him The King of kings salvation brings Let loving hearts enthrone Him. Chorus: Raise, raise a song on high The Virgin sings her lullaby. Joy, joy for Christ is born The Babe, the Son of Mary. Oh, This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste, to bring Him laud The Babe, the Son of Mary. Ending: He is the Son of Mary Christ the King Salvation bring Christ the King Salvation bring All hail the King Raise your voice and sing Christ the Savior He is the King of kings Christ is born Christ is born He is the King What child is this
