They spread the word concerning what they had been told. - Luke 2:17

MUSIC: Greensleeves
(What Child Is This)

What Child Is This, who, laid to rest,
On Mary's lap is sleeping.
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepards watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
whom shepards 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 siners here
The Silent Word is pleading.
This, this is Christ the King,
whom shepards 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.
This, this is Christ the King,
whom shepards 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.
This, this is Christ the King,
whom shepards guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
Jesus, the Son of Mary.
Jesus, the Son of Mary.
