     Am       C         G       Em
What Child is this who, laid to rest
   Am     F      E
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
     Am     C          G       Em
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
      Am        Em        Am
While shepherds watch are keeping?

C             G          Em
This, this is Christ the King,
     Am        F         E
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
C                G         Em
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
    Am        E      Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

    Am      C       G    Em
Why lies He in such mean estate,
      Am     F       E
Where ox and ass are feeding?
     Am          C         G       Em
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
    Am     Em      Am
The silent Word is pleading.

C            G            Em
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
    Am       F         E
The cross be borne for me, for you.
C              G         Em
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
    Am        Em     Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

   Am        C        G        Em
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
     Am       F       E
Come peasant, king to own Him;
    Am      C     G         Em
The King of kings salvation brings,
    Am     Em     Am
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

C              G       Em
Raise, raise a song on high,
    Am     F         E
The virgin sings her lullaby.
C            G         Em
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
    Am        Em     Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

I use a G/B on the second "this" and "haste" in the chorus. Also i replace Bm with Bm7 or a B7 in certain cases.

whereas this tab suggest Am-Em-Am for the last line of each verse, i use Am-E-Am and it sounds much better. the e minor should be major.

It is suppose to be Am E Am for every last line And it is better to be Dm not F [it is because you must have the main steps (I IV V) in a song and here Dm (which is IV in Am) is missing because you have replaced it with F (VI)] , this doesn't sound bad but in my opinion sounds better with a Dm. I Hope i made myself clear, good luck!
