Who Is He in Yonder Stall

Full Text

1. Who is He in yonder stall,
At whose feet the shepherds fall?
Who is He in deep distress,
Fasting in the wilderness?

'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. Who is he the people bless
For His words of gentleness?
Who is he to whom they bring
all the sick and sorrowing?

'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!

3. Who is He that stands and weeps
At the grave where Laz'rus sleeps?
Who is He the gath'ring throng
Greet with loud triumphant song?

'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!

4. Lo! at midnight, who is He
Prays in dark Gethsemane?
Who is he on yonder tree,
Dies in grief and agony?

'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!

5. Who is he that from the grave
Comes to heal and help and save?
Who is he that from His throne
Rules thro' all the world alone?

'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!
