What Child Is This?
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 shepherd guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
the babe, the son of Mary.
I like this song because it really makes you think about who baby Jesus really is. It talks about how everyone, such as the angels and shepherds, really see him as the savior. They worship this newborn baby as if he were a king.
This relates to Christmas because it is a day for us to respect him the way that the angels and shepherds had. It reminds us not to be selfish but to be selfless in the same way that Jesus was for us. It reminds us that Christmas is not about getting presents, but it is about the greatest gift we have ever been given, Jesus Christ Our Savior.Add Pingback
