Casting Crowns - What Child Is This (Christ The King) Lyrics



What Child is this
Who laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping

This is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
From our hearts our praises ring
To the Babe, the Son of Mary
Oh, raise a song on high
His Mother sings her lullaby

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

This is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
From our hearts our praises ring
To the Babe, the Son of Mary
Oh, raise a song on high
His Mother sings her lullaby

This is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
From our hearts our praises ring
To the Babe, the Son of Mary
Oh, raise a song on high
His Mother sings her lullaby

This is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
From our hearts our praises ring
To the Babe, the Son of Mary
Oh, raise a song on high
His Mother sings her lullaby

    "His MOTHER sings her lullaby". I know the virgin birth has become old fashioned but usually Casting Crowns is raising the lyrical bar.

    Dennis Leveridge

    It was never a "fashion" in the first place. It happened over 2000 years ago. Happened only once in all history. It was the first and last time it ever occurred.

    ddbakken

    @Dennis Leveridge I meant including it in Christmas carols (and simply believing it) has become old fashioned. At some point someone changed the lyrics in this song to remove "the virgin sings her lullaby". I'm dissapointed that they chose to use this version. Casting Crowns usually takes the high road in their lyrics. "Oh Glorious Day" for example includes "born of a virgin".

    Ok video I enjoy reading Bibles past I owned tons Bibles My favorite Bible scriptures (Douay Rheims Corinthians 15:51 says we shall all die not all be changed New American standard Bible Corinthians 15:51 says we shall not all sleep (Physical death) All be changed twinkling of eye at last Trump When Jesus Christ returns to Earth All Bibles Thessalonians 4:17 says we will not all die all be caught up in air to meet Lord forever Catechism says we will experience physical death When Jesus returns to Earth I want opinions reasons no1 knows exact truth) I'm interested in End World (Earth or Universe or Multiverse) I'm interested in Reincarnation, rapture (My dad says rapture 100% Fake I don't know exact truth my opinion all possible), Jesus Christ 2nd coming (Ressurection), Ascension.

  5. Shellie Smith

    A firm favourite Christmas song. This arrangement is beautifully done.

  6. Kerry Harrison

    I rarely give a thumbs down, but.....This was horrible.
    Great vocals, but changing that melody was a mistake.

    Z0MBIEGIRL QUEEN

    I disagree

    Hvala ti Gospod, da si me odrešil iz okultnega in od ljudi, ki meni in moji družini škodijo že od nekdaj z okultnimi zadevami. Gospod prosim blagoslovi mene in mojo družino, prosim te ne pusti, da bi načrti naših sovražnikov uspeli. Hvala ti, da si rešil mojo dušo in dušo moje hčerke. Gospod prosim te pomagaj mi do stalne in dobre službe. Moji sovražniki nočejo, da bi prišla do službe, hočejo me uničiti. Hvala ti Gospod, da me imaš rad. Hvala tudi izvajalcem te pesme  čudovita pesem, kot bi jo peli angeli. Ta pesem seže do srca in duše. Hvala vam.Lep pozdrav!Nataša iz Slovenije

  26. Tiffany Vargas

    Oh how greatful are we to you Marie for watching your child make a sacrifice many mothers would have never been able to indoor as a mother of 2 boys I cry for you the pain you must have felt Thank You

    Tiffany Vargas

    Valkyrian Sky in no way am I doing that however I am acknowledging her I too am a mother and I don't think I would have been able to endure such pain watching my son die 4 people who I that time cared nothing for him to watch him beat and bleeding strapped to a cross to watch people yell at him and Chris his named I I would have wanted to just take him and run away so I admire her for her strength and I feel her pain

    alicedemaria1

    Totally agree with you Tiffany, us women can put ourselvves in her shoes and nothing to see with trading Jesus' Glory for Mary's, as she has none !  Sending you blessings upon blessings that you may always walk and shine for His Kingdom.

    K Happy

    God gave her the grace. She is blessed among women.
