lyrics

What Child Is This (Greensleeves)

Words: William Chatterton Dix (1837-1898), The Manger Throne, 1865
Music: Greensleeves, 16th Century English melody
Arranged and performed by Allison Crowe

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 'whom angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary

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

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

What Child is this?

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary
