Who Is He?

by Benjamin Russell Hanby (1833-1867)

1. WHO is He in yonder stall,

At whose feet the shepherds fall?

'Tis the Lord, oh wondrous story!

'Tis the Lord, the King of glory!

At His feet we humbly fall,

Laud Him, own Him Lord of all.

2. Who is He in deep distress,

Fasting in the wilderness?

3. Who is He the people bless

For His words of gentleness?

4. Who is He to whom they bring

All the sick and sorrowing?

5. Who is He who stands and weeps

At the grave where Lazarus sleeps?

6. Who is He the gathering throng

Greet with loud triumphant song?

7. Lo at midnight, who is He

Prays in dark Gethsemane?

8. Who is He on yonder tree

Dies in grief and agony?

9. Who is He who from the grave

Rises glorious, strong to save?

10. Who is He who on the throne

Sits till all His sway shall own?
