This is an acoustic guitar and vocal rendition of that wonderful Christmas hymn, "What Child Is This?" Surrounding my voice are the many harmonic voices of Roxylee. Thanks Roxylee. A simple song of wonderment...

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?

Chorus:
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?
Good Christian, fear for sinners here,
The silent Word is pleading.

Chorus

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

I have a problem.....
With this song, because Christ was not a king, God is the king he was
the kings son.....Like we all are.....
History that was written by man, changed our way of thinking and not
all of it was good.....

But I must say, that you guys did a good job with this songs performance...

Happy Holidays.....

Some verses
Not a worldly king, but certainly fully God as well as man, and giving man entrance into his kingdom. :-)

Matthew 27:11
[ Jesus before Pilate ] Now Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor questioned Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” And Jesus said to him, “ It is as you say.”

John 18:37
Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “ You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

Merry Christmas, and thank you for the nice comment about the performance. :-)

Amen...
... and:
Jeremiah 5 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness.’

Jesus is King in as much as he is very God become man, the Savior... the Ruler became the Redeemer. The thief on the cross was blessed to recognized him... and found paradise.

Very nice duet! I like the assertive guitar strumming that accompanies the vocals. Provides a strong backbeat. Really clean recording and mix!

The assertive strumming
That Andrew mentioned lends your version a 'protest vibe' that I like more than I can say. (Just between you and me, I've been longing for some new -and real- protest music. Where is it??) Your song, though, raises the possibility that real strength and courage of conviction might be found in the stalwart and traditional, rather than the merely naive and aggrieved.
Your performances are very fine, and the entire package has stirred me. Thank you for this, and all the blessings of the season on you, Jack, and Roxy and everyone you love.

Much love,

MoM

What child is this
I like the simple approach to this. The harmonies are a delight. I find the rhythm guitar a little dull in the headphones, but it provides good contrast to the lead line, which is brighter. Much enjoyed!

Nothing more beautiful than what Jesus did for us, HE gave back what Adam took away , paid a ransom so we can be free of sin to approach Jehovah again
