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
This, This Is Christ The King
Whom Shepherds Guard And Angels Sing
Haste, Haste To Bring Him Laud
The Babe The Son Of Mary

verse 2

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

verse 3

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 the song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
