Carpenters – What Child Is This? lyrics

What child is this layed to rest
While Mary's man is sleeping
Whom angles greet with anthems sweet
While shepards watch their king

Why lies he in such lowly place
While cows and sheep are feeding
Good christian fear for sinners here
A silent word is pleeding

This This is christ the King
Whom shepards guard and angles sing
Hast hast to bring him praise
The baby son of mary

So bring him insence, gold, and myrrh
Come peasant King to owe him
The king of kings salvation bring
That loving hearts inthrone

This this is christ the king
Whom Shepards guard and angles sing
Hast Hast to bring him praise
The baby son of Mary
