What Child Is This?

It’s so hard to find a recording that does this song right. People seem afraid to do the second verse and chorus verbatim:

“Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear!
For sinners here, the Silent Word is Pleading!
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
The Cross be born for me, for you.
Hail, Hail the Word made flesh,
the Babe, the Son of Mary!”

  1. I have been seeking for this version. I could not find the right one.
    I agree that people are afraid to sing and listen to this part of the song. It simply does not fit them to the Christmas’ atmosphere…
