The 2015 CMA Country Christmas special got even better with a duet that will leave you smiling all holiday season long! 

Legendary country lady, Martina McBride takes the stage with famed Christian artist Michael W. Smith to deliver an incredible hymn to the masses. 

Performing the 1865 carol "What Child Is This", these two superstars combine McBride's harmonic voice with Smith's pure vocal talent and piano mastery. Both artists have released individual covers of this hymn on their respective Christmas albums and when they come together it's simply magical! 

Although the carol was originally written in 1865 by William Chatterton Dix, it wasn't published for another six years in 1871 when Christmas Carols Old and New was released in the United Kingdom. Interestingly, the carol was subsequently set to the tune of "Greensleeves", an English folk song and became much more popular in the United States than in its home country. 

Watch these two amazing recording artists bless the crowds with a traditional hymn performance that y'all will be sure to remember for years to come!  

LYRICS BELOW

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?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and donkeys are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spears shall pierce him through,
the cross he bore for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
the Babe, the Son of Mary.

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 a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, 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.
