1. What child is this who laid to rest
      Bm      Em       F#7
   On Ma-ry's lap, is sleep-ing?
        Bm                 A
   Whom an-gels greet with an-thems sweet
          Bm         F#7       Bm
   While shep-herds watch are keep-ing?
    D              A
** This, this is Christ the King
         Bm         Em       F#7

   Haste, haste to bring him laud___

   Where ox and ass are feed-ing?
          Bm                  A
   Good Christ-ian, fear for sin-ners here
       Bm      F#7      Bm
