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
