07. What Child Is This

Christmas
by Rebecca St. James



 

What child is this, who laid to rest
On Marys lap was sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthem 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 lamb 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

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
(repeat)
The babe the Son of Mary
