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'll bring him lord
The babe the son of Mary

So bring him
Incense, bring him gold
Come pleasant king to hold him
The king of kings
Salvation's 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, the son of Mary

What child is this who laid to rest
On Mary's lap sleeping
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, the son of Mary

Merry Christmas to you, and you, and you, and you, ooh
