"What Child is This?" is a Christmas song written by William Chatterton Dix.

Lyrics[]

What child is this who laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch their keeping

[Chorus]
This this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds, guard, and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud.
The babe; the son of Mary

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding
Good Christian fear for sinners here
The silent word is "pleading"

[Chorus]

So brings Him incense, gold, and myrrh
Come peasant king to own Him
The King of Kings salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone Him

[Chorus]
