What Child Is This

This song is by Cloverton and appears on the album We Sing Joy (2014).

What child is this who, laid to rest
On Mary's lap, is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthem sweet
While shepherds' watch are keeping

This is, this is the Christ our King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him praise and laud
The son of Mary, the Son of God

Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians fear for sinners, hear
The silent word is pleading

This is, this is the Christ our King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him praise and laud
The son of Mary, the Son of God

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh
Come peasant, king, to own him
The King of kings salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone him

This is, this is the Christ our King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him praise and laud
The son of Mary, the Son of God

This is, this is the Christ our King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him praise and laud
The son of Mary, the Son of God
