The Brothers Four – What Child Is This lyrics

What child is this who laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping
Whom angels great with anthem sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping

This, this is Christ the son
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Joy Joy for Christ is born
The babe, the son of Mary

So bring Him incense, gold, and myhr
Come peasant king to own Him
The King of Kings, salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone Him

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