Am C G Em What Child is this who, laid to rest Am F E On Mary's lap is sleeping? Am C G Em Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet, Am Em Am While shepherds watch are keeping? C G Em This, this is Christ the King, Am F E Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing; C G Em Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, Am E Am The Babe, the Son of Mary. Am C G Em Why lies He in such mean estate, Am F E Where ox and ass are feeding? Am C G Em Good Christians, fear, for sinners here Am Em Am The silent Word is pleading. C G Em Nails, spear shall pierce Him through, Am F E The cross be borne for me, for you. C G Em Hail, hail the Word made flesh, Am Em Am The Babe, the Son of Mary. Am C G Em So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, Am F E Come peasant, king to own Him; Am C G Em The King of kings salvation brings, Am Em Am Let loving hearts enthrone Him. C G Em Raise, raise a song on high, Am F E The virgin sings her lullaby. C G Em Joy, joy for Christ is born, Am Em Am The Babe, the Son of Mary.
