Happy Christmas-Christmas Carol Lyrics-Greensleeves

Happy Christmas to all the readers of this Blog.

To wish you a Happy Christmas here's a beautiful carol words from the 1800's and the music is around the 1500's so it's ancient but not as old as the Christmas story itself. The beautiful Christmas lyrics are underneath the video. The singer is Mitch Fewell. Enjoy!

What Child is This? Greensleeves 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

Why lies he in such mean estate

Where ox and ass are feeding?

Good Christian fear, for sinners here

The silent word is pleading

Nails, spear shall pierce him through

The cross be borne for me, for you

Hail, hail the Word made flesh

The babe, the son of Mary

Then 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
