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?

(chorus)

Why Lies He In Such Mean
Estate Where Ox And Ass
Are Feeding? Good Christian
Fear For Sinners Here The
Silent Word Is Pleading

(chorus)

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)

(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
