    are both alike an abomination to the LORD.

Hymn: WS 712, st. 1,2: What Child is This

Hymnary.org

1. 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. 

2. Why lies He in such mean estate 
where oxen now are feeding? 
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here 
the silent Word is pleading. 
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through; 
The cross He’ll bear for me, for you; 
Hail, Hail, the Word made flesh, 
The babe, the Son of Mary.
