WHAT CHILD IS THIS
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.
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 a song on high
The virgin sings their lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born
The babe, the son of Mary
The babe was son of Mary.
