What child is this


    • 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 praise, 
    • The babe, the Son of Mary. 

    • Why lies He in such mean estate, 
    • Where ox and ass are feeding? 
    • Good Christians, fear, for sinners here 
    • The silent Word is pleading. 
    • Nails, spear shall pierce Him through, 
    • The cross be borne for me, for you. 
    • Hail, hail the Word made flesh, 
    • The babe, the Son of Mary. 

    • So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, 
    • Come, peasant, king, to own Him; 
    • The King of kings salvation brings, 
    • Let loving hearts enthrone Him. 
    • Raise, raise a song on high, 
    • The virgin sings her lullaby. 
    • Joy, joy for Christ is born, 
    • The babe, the Son of Mary.
