What Child Is This?
Josh Groban 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?

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.

Oh, raise, raise a song on high,
His mother sings her lullaby.
Joy, oh 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.

What Child
Is this
Who laid
To rest
On Mary's lap
On Mary's lap
He is sleeping

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe,
The Son,
Of Mary

The Babe, the Son of Mary

The Son of Mary

I have to admit, you sing the best version of this song!

Eugene Marillier

@David Ray I totally agree. Josh Groban's version is without question the best.

Jeri Williams

I agree!

Verdant the Husky Wolf

In complete agreeance here.

Brandon Brown

he sings the best version of every song xD but in the Christmas genre... also O Holy Night! That one's incredible

David Ray

@Dani Gol He's great, but he doesn't hold a candle to Josh Groban.
