Who Is He in Yonder Stall

Full Text

1. Who is he in yonder stall
at whose feet the shepherds fall?

'Tis the Lord, O wondrous story!
'Tis the Lord, the King of glory;
at his feet we humbly fall,
crown him, crown him Lord of all!

2. Lo, at midnight who is he
prays in dark Gethsemane?

3. Who is he in Calvary's throes
asks for blessings on his foes?

4. Who is he who from the grave
comes to heal and help and save?

5. Who is he that from yon throne
rules the world of light alone?
