"WHAT CHILD IS THIS"

Verse 1
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 1
This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring Him praise,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
Verse 2
He lies in such a lowly place where ox and ass are feeding.
The end of fear for all who hear
The Silent Word is plead-ing.
Chorus 2
This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring Him praise,
The Babe, the Son of Ma-ry.
Verse 3
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, confess Him King to all the Earth.
The King of kings, salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him.
Chorus 3
This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring Him praise, the Babe, the Son of Mary.
Chorus 4
Raise, raise the song on high,
The Virgin sings her lullaby;
Joy, joy for Christ is born, the Babe,
The Son of Mary. Jesus, the Son of Mary.
