8 Motion Backgrounds for What Child is This?

“What Child is This?” was composed in 1865 by an insurance company manager, William Chatterton Dix. It was eventually sung to the tune of “Greensleeves.” This another popular classic Christmas carol that has seen a resurgence in recent years thorough the reprisal of many artists including the rendition here by Sleeping at Last.

9 Motion Backgrounds for What Child is This?

Finding motion backgrounds for What Child is This? was super simple at TripleWide Media. As we look at the story in the song and the focal point, it’s easy to find the perfect motions to help enhance the message. From simple nativity scenes to vibrant details of the manger, use this as a guide for your content.
I love the simplicity of the melody of the song and chose motions that flowed with that melody and tempo. If you wanted to, you could consider using still images at the beginning of the song (perhaps those from “Away in a Manger“) and then incorporate these motions to increase your energy level as the song builds.
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?
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Come Peasant, King to own Him
The King of Kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
Oh, raise, raise a song on high,
His mother sings her lullaby.
Joy, oh joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe,
The Son,
Of Mary.
What Child
Is this
Who laid
To rest
On Mary’s lap
On Mary’s lap
He is sleeping
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe,
The Son,
Of Mary
The Babe, the Son of Mary
The Son of Mary
