"What Child Is This?" sung at Communion time at the Church of Saint Mary in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Sunday, January 1, 2012. Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God. Anne Schletty: voice, Richard Schletty: voice and nylon acoustic guitar, Mary Joy Rieder: piano.

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?

[refrain]
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.

[refrain]

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.

[refrain]
