What Child is this who lay 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

Why lies He in such mean estate
Where ox and mules are feeding?
Good Christians fear for all sinners here
The silent Word is pleading
Nails, spears shall pierce him through
The cross be born, for me, for you
Hail, Hail the word made flesh
Babe the son of mary

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
The King of kings salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone Him
