♬♪ What Child is This? - Mormon Tabernacle Choir ♫♭ (P&S Natasha in Oz)

Good Evening All!

Natasha in Oz has done a little revamping of Sunday Song.  Sunday Song is no longer, but will be Pinning and Singing on the Weekend.  You'll have to check out all the changes over at 5 Minutes Just for Me.

Natasha has a wonderful Christmas blog, too, Keeping the Christmas Spirit Alive, 365.  Please check out both!  You'll be happy you did!

This week I've chosen "What Child is This" by the Morman Tabernacle Choir.

Lyrics by William Chatterton Dix, 1865
Music by Henry VIII, King of England.  The original was known as "Greensleeves."

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 ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
The cross be borne for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
3. So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Come peasant, king to own Him;
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

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

I hope you enjoy this weekend's selection, and remember the Babe, our Lord.

Take care and God Bless!

Joy, I am so sorry I haven't been to visit before now. I was so sure I had seen this post and commented but it would appear that I haven't!

Anyway, maybe you will forgive me when I tell you that you won my digital scrapbooking give-away! I hope you enjoy your prize and I will let you know how to claim it as soon as I hear back from My Memories.

Thanks for entering and congratulations!
