What Child Is This? lyrics
  • 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 freeding?
  • Good Christian, fear: for sinners here
  • 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.

  • 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.
