354. Who Is He in Yonder Stall?

1 Who is he in yonder stall
at whose feet the shepherds fall?
'Tis the Lord, O wondrous story!
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!
Who is he in yonder cot,
bending to his toilsome lot?
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!

2 Who is he in deep distress,
praying in the wilderness?
'Tis the Lord, O wondrous story!
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!
Who is he who stands and weeps
at the grave where Laz'rus sleeps?
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!

3 Lo! at midnight, who is he
prays in dark Gethsemane?
'Tis the Lord, O wondrous story!
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!
Who is he in Calvary's throes
asks for blessing on his foes?
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!

4 Who is he who from the grave
comes to heal and help and save?
'Tis the Lord, O wondrous story!
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!
Who is he that from his throne
rules the world of light alone?
'Tis the Lord, the Christ, the King of glory!

At his feet we humbly fall, the Lord of all.
Crown him, crown him!
This is Christ the Lord, the King of glory.
