Lyrics

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

Pre Chorus 1

This is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard
And angels sing
Born to set us free
This manger now
The mercy seat

Verse 2

Why lies He in this humble place
Where ox and lamb are feeding
This Child's cry the answer to
The prayers for our redeeming

Pre Chorus 2

Nails shall pierce Him through
The cross be born
For me for you
Born to set us free
This manger now
The mercy seat

Chorus 1

This is love
We’ve been forgiven
A Child born
To make us His children
Word made flesh
God among us
This is Jesus Heaven’s promise

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

Pre Chorus 3

Raise the song on high
The virgin sings her lullaby
Born to set us free
This manger now
The mercy seat

Chorus 1

This is love
We’ve been forgiven
A Child born
To make us His children
Word made flesh
God among us
This is Jesus

Chorus 2

This is love
We’ve been forgiven
A Child born
To make us His children
Word made flesh
God among us
This is Jesus
This is Jesus
Heaven's promise

Verse 4

The Father’s love what mystery
This Baby born for Calvary
From manger to Golgotha’s tree
The cross became
The mercy seat
