"What Child Is This?" as written by Robert Halford, Roger Ramirez and William Chatterton Dix....
What child is this
Who lay to rest

On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet
With anthems sweet
While shepherds watch
Are keeping?
Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and lamb are feeding?
Good Christian, fear: for all sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
This, This is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard
And angels sing
Haste, oh oh haste to bring Him laud
The babe, the son of Mary
What child is this
Who lay to rest

On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet
With anthems sweet
While shepherds watch
Are keeping?
Whoah oh oh
This, This is Christ the King (Christ the King)
Whom shepherds guard (shepherds guard)
And angels sing (and angels sing)
Haste, oh oh haste to bring Him laud
The babe, (the babe) the son of Mary (the son of Mary)
What child is this
Who lay to rest

On Mary's lap is sleeping?
What child (what child)
Whom angels greet
With anthems sweet
While shepherds watch
Are keeping?
What child is this
Who lay to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet
With anthems sweet
While shepherds watch
Are keeping?
(watch are keeping)
This, This is Christ the King (this is Christ the King)
Whom shepherds guard (who the shepherds guard)
And angels sing (and the angels sing)
Haste, (haste) oh oh haste to bring Him laud
The babe, the son (the babe) of Mary (son of Mary)
The baby the son of Mary
