Jane Siberry – What Child Is This? lyrics

What child is this who's laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherd's 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 myrrh
Come peasant, king to all of him
The king of kings
Celebration brings
That 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
