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? [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 on yonder 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 through all the world alone? [Refrain]
