    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.

    Nails, spears shall pierce Him through

    The cross be born for me and you
    Hail, hail the word meet flesh
    The Babe, the Son of Mary.

    So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh;
    Come peasant, king to own Him.
    The King of Kings salvation brings;
    Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

    Raise, raise the song on high
    The virgin sings her lullaby
    Joy, joy for Christ is born
    The Babe, the Son of Mary.

    The Babe, the Son of Mary
    The Babe, the Son of Mary
