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

Em

Em DWhat child is this, who, laid to rest
C B7On Mary's lap, is sleeping?
Em DWhom angels greet with anthems sweet,
C B7 EmWhile shepherds watch are keeping?
G DThis, this is Christ the King,
C B7Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G DHaste, haste to bring him laud,
C B7 EmThe Babe, the Son of Mary!
Em DWhy lies he in such mean estate
C B7Where ox and ass are feeding?
Em DGood Christian, fear for sinners here,
C B7 EmThe silent Word is pleasing.
G DThis, this is Christ the King,
C B7Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G DHaste, haste to bring him laud,
C B7 EmThe Babe, the Son of Mary!
G DNails, spear shall pierce Him through,
C B7The cross be borne for me, for you.
G DHail, hail the Word made flesh,
C B7 EmThe Babe, the Son of Mary.
G DThis, this is Christ the King,
C B7Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G DHaste, haste to bring him laud,
C B7 EmThe Babe, the Son of Mary!
Em DSo bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh,
C B7Come peasant king to own Him,
Em DThe King of kings, salvation brings,
C B7 EmLet loving hearts enthrone Him.
G DThis, this is Christ the King,
C B7Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
G DHaste, haste to bring him laud,
C B7 EmThe Babe, the Son of Mary!
G DRaise, raise the song on high,
C B7The Virgin sings her lullaby:
G DJoy, joy, for Christ is born,
C B7 EmThe Babe, the Son of Mary!
