Mark Chesnutt – 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.

--- Instrumental ---

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him.

Raise, Raise the song on high
The virgins sings her lullabye
Joy, Joy, for Christ is born
The babe, the son of Mary...
