Sing the two verse 3s and the following choruses in unison


CotP Verse 1: 
  Em          G        D
Helpless and hungry, lowly afraid,
  Em            C            B
Wrapped in the chill of mid-winter
  Em        G        D                     Em
Comes now among us, born into poverty's embrace,
     B             Em
New life for the world


CotP Chorus:
 Em      G                       D
Who is this who lives with the lowly, Sharing their sorrows,
 C              B
Knowing their hunger? 
         G                        D
This is Christ, revealed to the world
                  Em        B           Em           
In the eyes of a child, a child of the poor.
Cmaj7 D Em


WCiT Verse 1:
       Em      G           D
What child is this, who, laid to rest,
   Em      C      B
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
      Em       G        D
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
       Em        B         Em
While shepherds watch are keeping?


WCiT Chorus:
 G             D
This, this is Christ the King,
                 C        B
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
 G               D
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
     Em        B      Em
The babe, the son of Mary.
Cmaj7 D Em


CotP Verse 2:
  Em          G        D
Who is the stranger, here in our midst,
  Em         C         B
Looking for shelter among us?
  Em         G        D                       Em
Who is this outcast? Who do we see amidst the poor,
       B         Em  
The children of God?


CotP Chorus:
 Em      G                       D
Who is this who lives with the lowly, Sharing their sorrows,
 C              B
Knowing their hunger? 
         G                        D
This is Christ, revealed to the world
                  Em        B           Em           
In the eyes of a child, a child of the poor.
Cmaj7 D Em


WCiT Verse 2:
     Em      G        D
Why lies he in such mean estate
      Em      C        B
Where ox and ass are feeding?
      Em        G          D
Good Christian, fear: for sinners here
     Em     B         Em
The silent Word is pleading.


WCiT Chorus:
 G             D
This, this is Christ the King,
                 C        B
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
 G               D
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
     Em        B      Em
The babe, the son of Mary.
Cmaj7 D Em


CotP Verse 3:
   Em          G        D
Bring all the thirsty, all who seek peace;
  Em              C          B
Bring those with nothing to offer,
  Em            G       D                     
Strengthen the feeble, say to the frightened heart:
      Em     B          Em
"Fear not, here is your God!".


CotP Chorus:
 Em      G                       D
Who is this who lives with the lowly, Sharing their sorrows,
 C              B
Knowing their hunger? 
         G                        D
This is Christ, revealed to the world
                  Em        B           Em           
In the eyes of a child, a child of the poor.
Cmaj7 D Em


WCiT Verse 3:
    Em        G        D
So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
       Em       C        B
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
     Em      G       D
the King of kings salvation brings,
     Em     B         Em
Let loving hearts enthrone him.


WCiT Chorus:
 G             D
This, this is Christ the King,
                 C        B
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
 G               D
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
     Em        B      Em
The babe, the son of Mary.
Cmaj7 D Em
