Who Is He in Yonder Stall Lyrics
1 Who is he born in the 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? [Refrain]
3 Who is he that stands and weeps
at the grave where Lazarus sleeps?
Who is he the gath’ring throng
greet with loud triumphant song? [Refrain]
4 Lo! at midnight, who is he
prays in dark Gethsemane?
Who is he upon the tree
dies in grief and agony? [Refrain]
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? [Refrain]
