What Child Is This?

Words by Anie Burke-Webb

<bgsound SRC="../YuleMIDI/greensleeves.mid" loop=4>
Tune:  "Greensleeves"

What child is this, who rises now
from His Mother's womb returning
Her children greet most joyously
the sight of His face's bright burning

Chorus:

This, this is the Sun child born
The radiant one, the light returned
Born unto the world again
This child, the promise of summer

His growing light returns the warmth
that darkness stole from out the Earth
To bud the leaves, and blossoms bring
to signal the Spring's rebirth

Chorus
