What Child Is This?

We will be singing a couple of Christmas songs this Sunday that may not be familiar to you. Take a moment to learn these beautiful songs so you can sing about the Savior with us!

What Child is This?

VERSE 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

VERSE 2
Why lies He in such mean estate
Where ox and lamb are feeding? 
Good Christian, 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

VERSE 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 


He Who is Mighty

VERSE 1
Oh, the mercy our God has shown
To those who sit in death’s shadow
The sun on high pierced the night
Born was the Cornerstone

PRE-CHORUS
Unto us a Son is given, unto us a Child is born

CHORUS
He Who is mighty has done a great thing
Taken on flesh, conquered death’s sting
Shattered the darkness and lifted our shame
Holy is His name

VERSE 2
Oh, the freedom our Savior won
The yoke of sin has been broken
Once a slave, now by grace
No more condemnation

BRIDGE
Now my soul magnifies the Lord
I rejoice in the God Who saves
I will trust His unfailing love
I will sing His praises all my days
