1. Who is this that cometh in the starlit glow,
As a newborn infant, to the manger low;
While the shepherds wonder at the wondrous sight,
While the angel chorus wakes the silent night?

Refrain
’Tis the Meek and Lowly, Just and Holy One;
This is He that cometh—God’s belovèd Son:
’Tis the Meek and Lowly, Just and Holy One;
This is He that cometh—God’s belovèd Son.

2. Who is this that cometh, this poor Nazarene,
With His timely counsel, with His faultless mien;
With His help and healing for the lame, the blind,
For the poor, the needy, for the burdened mind? [Refrain]

3. Who is this that cometh, spurning earthly gain,
To the midnight garden, to the cross of pain;
Cometh forth triumphant, from the sealèd grave,
Cometh in His beauty, in His might to save? [Refrain]
