Tomlin, Chris - 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 a a song on high!
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born
The Babe, the Son of Mary!
This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing!
Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The Babe the Son of Mary

Nails, spears shall pierce Him through
The Cross He bore for me, for you
Hail, hail the Word made flesh the Babe
The Son of Mary

    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 a a song on high!
    The virgin sings her lullaby
    Joy, joy for Christ is born
    The Babe, the Son of Mary!
    This, this is Christ the King
    Whom shepherds guard and angels sing!
    Haste, haste to bring Him laud

  36. HoukaiBG

    Let it be known that the original song is called Greensleeves and is about a prostitute. Christian plagiarism at it's finest...

    abhishek ganguly

    The original is not British since this is based on Italian style of compostition. I suppose you believe king Henry composed it ?which is very unlikely to be true considering it come to England after Henry died .so there isn't an "original "since bards of that time tend to borrow from different sources and compose different song with the same tune.besides the idea of plagiarism didn't exist back then .and considering how important faith was to the people of that time (and is still is to many today) are you really that surprised that someone (since we dont know who) wrote this song to commemorate the birth of the messiah (a central figure in his faith)?

    Beautiful version. 

    Lyrics are: "Nails, spear shall pierce him through, the cross be borne for me, for you." There was only one spear - that's important. And it's in the future, not the past so you can't say "He bore"

  75. Anthony Maloney

    While I appreciate your team putting the chords in the video, the chords are for the key half a step below. You show chords from the key of E minor, but this song is in F minor. A beginning guitarist may not understand they need to capo fret one and then play these chord shapes. I recommend you amend it when possible +ChrisTomlinVEVO

    Ruben De Jong

    they did say at the beginning of song, that it is CAPO 1, but I do get what you're saying, because it goes past quite quickly

  76. Lina Kumar

    "For God so loved the world He sent His only begotten son."

    Christ is King, now and forever. All Hail Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of All.

    Tixle

    Also Jesus Died For You, almost all prophesies have come true. We have yet to experience Jesus’s prophecy of coming back to Earth for a second time. Jesus himself doesn’t even know when that day will come, only God the Father knows

    fedi ben brahim

    @Tixle do Christians believe that god will forgive them all ? For Whatever they do ?

    fedi ben brahim

    @Tixle we all know that jesus will be back on earth because he didn't die that's for sure but he is not the son of god like how????

    Tixle

    Alright I’ll try to explain this, so Jesus has always existed. There is 3 parts to God, but he is one God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus was always a part of God from the beginning. But, he was sent down by God once Mary said yes. Jesus then became human. Making him 100% God and 100% human. Also yes, Christians believe that God will forgive all of their sins, as long as they are sincere about their apology in the confessional. There is one exception to this, which Jesus speaks of in the Bible. Matthew 12:30-32 says "Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. And so I tell you, any sin and blasphemy can be forgiven. But blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.” So any sin will be forgiven except if you intentionally blaspheming the Holy Spirit.

    Tixle

    Any other questions @fedi ben brahim

    I wanted to say I had a hard time holding back tears, I failed, they're spinning along my face even as I write, beautiful, make me miss heaven, you heard me right, there is no place like home, right? Thank you Jesus, love Apostle, Pat, Apb.

    Jesus is not the Son of Mary. He is the Son of the Living God.

    Marvel Gamer

    @Jasmine Duthie Duthie http://biblehub.com/john/19-26.htm
    Mary was "disowned" by Jesus. She is no longer His mother becuase He is now back to His full glory that He had before He entered this world.

    Brandon Burrell

    Marvel Gamer John took Mary into his home at the command of Jesus Christ. It wasn't a disowning. Please be kind.

    Brandon Burrell

    He's also the Son of man. Mary being part of man-kind.

    Kage Krôss

    In short, Jesus is God!

  94. nobrainleft

    The chords shown are not the key they are actually singing it in. Why???

    Ruvim Trofimovich

    Capo on 1

    nobrainleft

    +Ruvim Trofimovich I'm a vocalist, and was trying to find a recording in the same key we were going to play it in, so I could pick out a harmony part. Thought this one was going to work, but then realized it was actually in a different key. A capo is fine if you're playing guitar &/or not playing with others, but not so great for other instruments.

    I sing this song at carol
