What Child Is This-crd   Ricky Van Shelton




Subject: what child is this

   Capo VII


   Am  G
   (Am) What child is (C) this, who, (G) laid to rest
   On (F) Mary's lap, is (E) slee(E7)ping?
   Whom (Am) angels (C) greet with (G) anthems sweet,
   While (F) shepherds (E) watch are (Am) keeping?


     (C) This, this is (G) Christ the King,
     Whom (F) shepherds guard and (E) angels (E7) sing:
     (C) Haste, haste to (G) bring him laud,
     The (F) Babe, the (E) Son of (Am) Mary!


   So (Am) bring Him (C) incense, (G) gold, and myrrh,
   Come (F) peasant king to (E) own (E7 Him,
   The (Am) King of (C) kings, sal(G)vation brings,
   Let (F) loving (E) hearts en(Am)throne Him.


     (C) This, this is (G) Christ the King,
     Whom (F) shepherds guard and (E) angels (E7) sing:
     (C) Haste, haste to (G) bring him laud,
     The (F) Babe, the (E) Son of (Am) Mary!


   Extra verses :
     Raise, raise the song on high,
     The Virgin sings her lullaby:
     Joy, joy, for Christ is born,
     The Babe, the Son of Mary!


   Why lies he in such mean estate
   where ox and ass are feeding?
   Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
   the silent Word is pleading.
