What Child is This?

What Child is This?

Music & Text - Old English Tune

  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.
  2. Why lies He in such mean estate
    Where ox and ass are feeding?
    ood Christian, fear for sinners here,
    the silent Word is pleading.
    s, this is Christ the King;
    Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.
    Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
    The Babe, the Son of Mary.
  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.
