Christmas Songs – 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 feeding 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 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 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
