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.
