Michael W. Smith – 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 Lord
The Babe, the Son of Mary

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrth
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 Lord
The Babe, the Son of Mary

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring him Lord
The Babe, the Son of Mary

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring him Lord
The Babe, the Son of Mary

    This child is the king jesus who is the son of god, the christ. The lamb of god who takes away the sin of the world so we can come to god not by our own righteuosness, but by the righteuosness of jesus for he was righteous and the perfect sacrifise to god for all sins. It's his sacrificial offering that brings life to those who except him as lord and savior. John 14: 6 jesus said "i am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father but by me. " have you recieved jesus as your lord and savior? This child loves you so much that he grew up to face death for you.
