Bocelli, Andrea - 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!

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!

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!

    I don’t like the black hooded men standing in a circle, they look creepy like a cult.

  23. Manjunatha M

    I love Christianity. I am a Hindu still I feel to have the greatest reverence on this religion. They gave me a good education with a minimum fee, not so expansive even poor can offer.

    Gabriel de Souza

    Remember it's catholicism. Nowadays the other christians are very corrupted by the social liberalism. The unic that remains a stronghold of the TRUE christianity is the CATHOLIC CHURCH

    Black Lighting

    the war is for your mind...

    E Perm

    Gabriel de Souza True. I converted to Catholicism about 2 years ago after the Baptist church I went to started to talk more about politics and Trump more than the Bible. I see Catholicism as more pure now.

    Gabriel de Souza

    @E Perm Our Lord and Our Lady bless you my brother. I wish you keep in your new and true path of the Church of Christ. From Brasil.

  24. Sandi King

    Andrea should have had a different person accompanying him. Mary Blidge's pitch gets to be too much.

  25. Lily CaliR

    Wow!! So powerful

    Danny Venturino

    Dear sir , even though it’s 2019 please don’t believe that is true. Maybe in another 50 years


    GodsTinGle that’s such an ignorant statement

  58. Jane Doe

    Okay a bit of a grich here, but I love to hear this song with a classically trained female singer!
    I normally love Mary J Blige, she's got an awesome voice, but I don't think her way of singing harmonizes
    with Andrea Bocellis in this song.
    Love Andrea Bocelli and the choir in this song though!

    Mary Mcwhorter

    Blame David Foster. Not Andrea or Mary J.

  59. One Step Away

  97. Hadaf Halata

    Ho Howww Hmm
    What Child is this
    Who, laid to rest
    On Mary's lap is sleeping?
    Ho Ho
    Whom angels greet
    With anthems sweet
    While shepherds watch are keeping?
    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, this is Christ, the King
    Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
    Haste, haste to bring Him laud
    The Babe, the Son of Mary
    Raise, raise the song on high
    The Virgin sings her lullaby:
    Joy, joy, for Christ is born
    The Babe, the Son of Mary
    This is the Son of Mary
    What Child is this
    What Child is this
    What Child is this
    This, this is Christ, the King
    Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
    Haste, haste to bring Him laud
    The Babe, the Son of Mary
    of Mary, of Mary, of Mary.
