Connie Smith — What Child Is This lyrics

What child is this who laid to rest on Mary's lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet while shepherds watch are keeping
This this is Christ the King whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste haste to bring him laud 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
This this is Christ the King...

So bring him incense gold and myrrh come rich and poor to own him
The King of kings salvation brings let loving hearts enthrone him
This this is Christ the King...
