205. What Child Is This?

Greensleeves Melody

Em         D
What child is this, who, laid to rest,
Em c6   B7
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Em          D
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
Em B7   B7   Em
While shepherds watch are keeping?
Bm G    D 
This, this is Christ the King,
Em      c6     B7
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: 
Bm G    D 
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
Em    B7   Em
The Babe, the son of Mary.
Why lies He in such mean estate 
Where ox and ass are feeding? 
Good Christian, fear: for sinners here 
The silent Word is pleading.
So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh, 
Come peasant, king, to own Him: 
The King of kings salvation brings, 
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.
