What Child Is This?


EmGDBm
What child is this who laid to rest
EmAmB
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
EmGDBm
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
EmBEm
While shepherds watch are keeping?

GD
This, this is Christ the King
EmAmB
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
GD
Haste, haste to bring him Laud
EmB7Em
The babe, the son of Mary

Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear, for sinners here
The silent word is pleading

EmGDBm
So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh
EmAmB
Come peasant, King, to own him
EmGDBm
The King of Kings salvation brings
EmBEm
Let loving hearts enthrone him
