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


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

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"


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