What child is this laid to rest
While Mary's man is sleeping
Whom angles greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch their king

Why lies he in such lowly place
While cows and sheep are feeding
Good christian fear for sinners here
A silent word is pleading

[Chorus]
This is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angles sing
Hast hast to bring him praise
The baby son of Mary

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh
Come peasant King to owe him
The king of kings salvation bring
That loving hearts in throne

[Chorus]
