Charlotte Church – Greensleeves lyrics

What child is this who lay to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepards watch are keeping

This! This! is Christ the King
Whom shepards guard and angels sing
This! This! is Christ the King
The babe the son of Mary

Why lies He in such mean estate
Where ox and lamb are feeding
Good christian fear for sinners hear
The silent word is leading


So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh
Come plesent king to own Him
The king of kings salvation brings
Let love and hearts enthrone Him
