Newton-John, Olivia - What Child Is This? 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, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
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 the song on high,
The Virgin sings her lullaby:
Joy, joy, for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary

Joy, joy, for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary

    Pure gold & honey!

    Still enjoying this two weeks after Christmas - hey, it's Epiphany weekend as I'm listening to this right now and we're singing this song at church this weekend. This sends chills up my spine. Olivia's voice is clear and pure like always. They don't make singers like her anymore. Long live Livvy!

  3. Jeff Warren

    The most wonderful version of this song ever recorded. <3
