What Child is This?

Greensleeves, traditional tune. Words by William DIx


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 laude

The babe, the son of Mary


So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh

Come rich and poor to own Him

The King of Kings salvation brings

Let loving hearts enthrone Him
