"What Child Is This?" is a traditional Christian Christmas carol written in 1865 by William Chatterton Dix using a melody very similar to "Greensleeves".

It has been sung by many popular musicians including Josh Groban, Charlotte Church, Andrea Bocelli, Lindsey Stirling, Sarah McLachlan, Martina McBride, Chris Tomlin and many others.

What child is this

B         A    F#   D-E
Who laid to rest

F#   G-E    E-D#  E   F#-D#-.B
On Mary's lap is sleeping?

E G-A B-^C B A-F# D-E
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet

F#          G-F#-E     D#-C#   D#     E-E
While shepherds watch are keeping?

 

^D ^D-^C B    A     F#   D-E
This, this is christ the king

Haste, haste, to bring him laud

F#    G-F#    E   D#-C#  D#  E-E
The   babe,   the   son   of   Mary
