What Child Is This?
[Advent]

Verse 1
     Am       C         G       Em
What Child is this who, laid to rest
   Am     F      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?

Chorus: 
C             G          Em
This, this is Christ the King,
     Am        F         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.

Verse 2
   Am        C        G        Em
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
     Am       F       E
Come peasant, king to own Him;
    Am      C     G         Em
The King of kings salvation brings,
    Am     E     Am
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Verse 3
C              G       Em
Raise, raise a song on high,
    Am     F         E
The virgin sings her lullaby.
C            G         Em
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
    Am        E     Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
