What Child Is This? Christmas Songs


 What Child Is This? Christmas Songs

This traditional Christmas carol was written in England by William Chatterton Dix in 1865, and is sung to the centuries-old English folk tune called “Greensleeves.”

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

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
