Capo 1

C, B, Em...

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

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

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

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

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

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