(This song took it's melody from Greensleeves)

           Am                     G                      F                     E
What child is this who laid to rest on Mary’s lap is sleeping

             Am                        G                                   F                 E7            Am
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet while shepherd’s watch are keeping

C                   G                                    F                                   E
This , this is Christ the King whom shepherds guard and angels sing

C                        G                              F              E7       Am
Haste, haste to bring Him laud the Babe the Son of Mary

Am                            G                                F                        E
Why lies He in such mean estate where ox and ass are feeding?

Am                                     G                          F       E7         Am
Good Christians fear for sinners here the silent word is pleading

C                            G                                     F                              E
Nails, spear shall pierce him through the cross He borne for me for you

C                    G                                  F              E7       Am
Hail, hail the Word made flesh the Babe the Son of Mary

       Am                           G                                   F
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, come peasant King to own Him

        Am                           E
                         G                          F        E7               Am
The King of Kings, sal-va-tion brings let loving hearts en - throne him

C                          G                           F                              E
Raise, raise the song on high, the Virgin sing her lullaby

C                  G                           F              E7        Am
Joy, joy for Christ is born, the Babe the Son of Mary
