Who Is He in Yonder Stall?

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 wond'rous story! 'Tis the Lord! The King of glory!

At His feet we humbly fall, crown Him! Crown Him Lord of all!

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 wond'rous story! 'Tis the Lord! The King of glory!

At His feet we humbly fall, crown Him! Crown Him Lord of all!

Who is He that stands and weeps at the grave where Laz’rus sleeps?

Who is He the gath’ring throng great with loud triumphant song?

'Tis the Lord! O wond'rous story! 'Tis the Lord! The King of glory!

At His feet we humbly fall, crown Him! Crown Him Lord of all!

Lo! At midnight, who is He, prays in dark Gethsemane?

Who is He in yonder tree, dies in grief and agony?

'Tis the Lord! O wond'rous story! 'Tis the Lord! The King of glory!

At His feet we humbly fall, crown Him! Crown Him Lord of all!

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 wond'rous story! 'Tis the Lord! The King of glory!

At His feet we humbly fall, crown Him! Crown Him Lord of all!

Words and music by Benjamin Russell Hanby, 1833-1867
