What Child Is This   Holiday


William Chatterton Dix/Traditional. publ.1865

What Child is this, who laid to rest, [Em G D Bm]
On Mary's lap is sleeping? [Em Bm]
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet [Em G D Bm] 
While shepherds watch are keeping? [Em B7 Em]

This, this is Christ the King [Bm G D Bm]
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing. [Em Bm]
Haste, haste to bring Him laud, [Bm G D Bm]
The Babe, the Son of Mary. [Em B7 Em]

Why lies he in such mean estate Where ox and ass are feeding? Good 
Christian, fear for sinners here, The silent Word is pleasing. (repeat 

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