What Child Is This Lyrics

What Child Is This lyrics (as commonly sung):

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.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
The cross be borne for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

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.

Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Angels We Have Heard On High
Auld Lang Syne
Away In A Manger
Deck The Halls
Go Tell It On The Mountain
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Good King Wenceslas
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
I Saw Three Ships
In The Bleak Midwinter
It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
Jingle Bells
Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
Joy To The World
O Come All Ye Faithful
O Holy Night
Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
Silent Night
The First Noel
The 12 Days of Christmas
Up On The Housetop
We Three Kings
We Wish You A Merry Christmas
