WHAT CHILD IS THIS

featuring Miles with his family at Christmas gathering
Part of the “A Cappella Christmas Cards” collection.

What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary’s breast lay sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him praise,
The babe, the son of Mary.

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

Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The babe, the Son of Mary.
