lyrics

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

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding
The kings of earth and all their worth
Appear before him fleeting

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary

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

about

Symon Hajjar Tulsa

My music is a mix of hymns, whims, and contemplations that have come to me over the years as I have tried to honestly reflect on my own journey of belief and self realization. I hope that more than a few of them ring true with you too. Enjoy.
