What Child Is This? chords
William Chatterton Dix 1865 (words) music: Greensleeves

Em

     Em                  D
What child is this, who, laid to rest 
   C              B7
On Mary's lap, is sleeping? 
     Em                D
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, 
      C         B7        Em
While shepherds watch are keeping?
 
G             D
This, this is Christ the King, 
     C                   B7
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G               D
Haste, haste to bring him laud, 
    C         B7     Em
The Babe, the Son of Mary! 

    Em              D
Why lies he in such mean estate 
      C              B7
Where ox and ass are feeding? 
     Em                  D
Good Christian, fear for sinners here, 
    C      B7      Em
The silent Word is pleasing. 

G             D
This, this is Christ the King, 
     C                   B7
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G               D
Haste, haste to bring him laud, 
    C         B7     Em
The Babe, the Son of Mary! 

G                  D
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
    C                  B7
The cross be borne for me, for you.
G              D
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
    C         B7     Em
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

G             D
This, this is Christ the King, 
     C                   B7
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G               D
Haste, haste to bring him laud, 
    C         B7     Em
The Babe, the Son of Mary! 

   Em                 D
So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh, 
     C               B7
Come peasant king to own Him, 
    Em                D
The King of kings, salvation brings, 
    C      B7       Em
Let loving hearts enthrone Him. 

G             D
This, this is Christ the King, 
     C                   B7
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G               D
Haste, haste to bring him laud, 
    C         B7     Em
The Babe, the Son of Mary! 

G                D
Raise, raise the song on high,
    C                B7
The Virgin sings her lullaby: 
G             D
Joy, joy, for Christ is born, 
    C         B7     Em
The Babe, the Son of Mary!
