What child is this?

(L: W. C. Dix 1865, M:)

	  		(verse 1)   
          Em   Am  Em           D        Bm 
What Child  is  this, who, laid to rest,   
       C        Am     B7    
On Mary's lap is sleeping?   
          Em  Am  Em           D           Bm 
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet   
           Em            B7           Em    
While shepherds watch are keeping?   
  
tabchorus
G D Bm This, this is Christ the King C Am B7 Whom shepherds guard and angels sing. G D Bm Haste, haste to bring Him laud, Em B7 Em The Babe, the Son of Mary.

(verse 2) Em Am Em D Bm Why lies he in such mean estate C Am B7 Where ox and ass are feeding? Em Am Em D Bm Good Christian, fear for sinners here, Em B7 Em The silent Word is pleading.
tabchorus
G D Bm Nails, spear shall pierce him through, C Am B7 The cross be borne for me, for you. G D Bm Hail, hail the Word made flesh, Em B7 Em The babe, the son of Mary.
tab
(verse 3) Em Am Em D Bm So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh; C Am B7 Come, peasant king, to own Him. Em Am Em D Bm The King of Kings salvation brings; Em B7 Em Let loving hearts enthrone Him.
tabchorus
G D Bm Raise, raise the song on high! C Am B7 The virgin sings her lullaby. G D Bm Joy! Joy! for Christ is born, Em B7 Em The babe, the son of Mary.
