WHEN the familiar tune of “Greensleeves” fills the air at Christmas, our hearts answer with the lyrics that begin, “What child is this….” Written nearly 150 years ago, this carol still reminds us to share our treasures, our love, and our heartfelt songs in honor of the greatest Christmas gift of all:
So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
Come, peasant, king, to own Him!
The King of Kings salvation brings;
Let loving hearts enthrone Him!
Raise, raise the song on high!
The virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy! joy! for Christ is born,
The babe, the son of Mary!
