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

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

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh
Come peasant king to praise Him
The King of king, the glory brings
Let loving hearts enthrone Him

Raise, raise the song on high
That's singing through the earth and sky
Joy, joy for Christ is born
The Babe, the Son of Mary

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

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds watch and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him praise
The Babe, the Son of Mary
