Child Of The Poor, What Child Is This?

	  		

Verse 1:
  
  Em          G        D 
Helpless and hungry, lowly afraid, 
  Em            C            B 
Wrapped in the chill of mid-winter 
  Em        G        D                     Em 
Comes now among us, born into poverty's embrace, 
     B             Em 
New life for the world 


tabchorus
Em G D Who is this who lives with the lowly, Sharing their sorrows, C B Knowing their hunger? G D This is Christ, revealed to the world Em B Em In the eyes of a child, a child of the poor.

G D This, this is Christ the King, C B Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: G D Haste, haste to bring him laud, Em B Em The babe, the son of Mary.

tabchorus
Em G D Who is this who lives with the lowly, Sharing their sorrows, C B Knowing their hunger? G D This is Christ, revealed to the world Em B Em In the eyes of a child, a child of the poor.

Verse 2: Em G D Why lies he in such mean estate Em C B Where ox and ass are feeding? Em G D Good Christian, fear: for sinners here Em B Em The silent Word is pleading.
tabchorus
G D This, this is Christ the King, C B Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: G D Haste, haste to bring him laud, Em B Em The babe, the son of Mary.

tabchorus
Em G D Who is this who lives with the lowly, Sharing their sorrows, C B Knowing their hunger? G D This is Christ, revealed to the world Em B Em In the eyes of a child, a child of the poor.

tabchorus
G D This, this is Christ the King, C B Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: G D Haste, haste to bring him laud, Em B Em The babe, the son of Mary.
