A Carol a Day

By Father Johann Roten, S.M.

What Child Is This?

William Dix (lyrics)
1865
Melody of Greensleaves

Why lies He in such a mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

Nails, spear shall pass Him through,
The cross be borne for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
