     Am       C         G       Em
What Child is this who, laid to rest
   Am     F      E
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
     Am     C          G       Em
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
      Am        Em        Am
While shepherds watch are keeping?


C             G          Em
This, this is Christ the King,
     Am        F         E
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
C                G         Em
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
    Am        E      Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.


    Am      C       G    Em
Why lies He in such mean estate,
      Am     F       E
Where ox and ass are feeding?
     Am          C         G       Em
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
    Am     Em      Am
The silent Word is pleading.


C            G            Em
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
    Am       F         E
The cross be borne for me, for you.
C              G         Em
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
    Am        Em     Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.


   Am        C        G        Em
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
     Am       F       E
Come peasant, king to own Him;
    Am      C     G         Em
The King of kings salvation brings,
    Am     Em     Am
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.


C              G       Em
Raise, raise a song on high,
    Am     F         E
The virgin sings her lullaby.
C            G         Em
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
    Am        Em     Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

  1. I like +7

  2. wendi friesen

    +5

  3. You can substitute E7 for the dreaded E chord with this chord progression and I think it sounds just fine.

  4. Impromptu

    I like to use d, d, d,d, etc. for slow songs.☺

  5. pandahope31

    Do you know if you could post the picking pattern, as well?

  6. Whoa this is amazing I am self taught and quite new and i love this arrangement +5 is the easiest and smoothest i found!

  7. -5 is the easiest for me. Love this song, thanks for the tab.

  8. i think that where it is Am-Em-Am it should be an E instead of Em
