What Child is This? –English 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

What Child is This? –Spanish Lyrics

¿Qué niño es este que al dormir

en brazos de María?

Pastores velan

Ángeles le cantan melidías.

¡Él es el Cristo el Rey!

Pastores, ángeles cantad

¡Venid, venid a Él!

Al hijo de María.
