What child is this Lyrics

What child is this - Johnny Cash

 

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 cattle are feeding

 

Good christian fear for sinners here

 

The silent world 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 a song on high

The Virgin sings her lullaby

 

Joy joy for Christ is born

The babe the son of Mary
