What Child Is This – Christmas Carol


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? This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son, of Mary. Why lies he in such mean estate, Where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christian, fear, for sinners hear The silent word is pleading. This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son, of Mary. Instrumental 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. This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary.
