What Child Is This? Lyrics

What Child Is This? - Ray Conniff

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 Lord


The Babe the Son of Mary


Why lies He in such mean estate


Where ox and a** are feeding


Good Christian 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


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 the song on high

The Virgin sings her lullaby:

Joy joy for Christ is born

The Babe the Son of Mary



The Babe the Son of Mary
