Song : A
Am C G Em
What Child is this who, laid to rest
Am E
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Am C G Em
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
Am E Am
While shepherds watch are keeping?

C G Em
This, this is Christ the King,
Am E
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
C G Em
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
Am E Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Am C G Em
Why lies He in such mean estate,
Am E
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Am C G Em
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
Am Em Am
The silent Word is pleading.

C G Em
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
Am E
The cross be borne for me, for you.
C G Em
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
Am Em Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Am C G Em
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Am E
Come peasant, king to own Him;
Am C G Em
The King of kings salvation brings,
Am Em Am
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

C G Em
Raise, raise a song on high,
Am E
The virgin sings her lullaby.
C G Em
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
Am Em Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
