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?
3 Who is He that stands and weeps
At the grave where Lazarus sleeps?
Who is He the gath'ring throng
Greet with loud triumphanat song?
4 Lo, at midnight who is he
prays in dark Gethsemane?
Who is He on yonder tree
Dies in grief and agony?
5 Who is he who from the grave
comes to heal and help and save?
Who is He that from His throne
rules through all the world alone?
