Advent 2019 #17: Who is he?

Here’s another Christmas song today that you might not be particularly familiar with or have never heard before. It basically starts at Christmas time and maps out Jesus’ life. The chorus comes after every verse but I’ve left it until the end.

I think I’ll just let this song sing for itself today…

Who is he in yonder stall at whose feet the shepherds fall?

Who is he in deep distress fasting in the wilderness?

Who is he the people bless for his words of gentleness?

Who is he to whom they bring all the sick and sorrowing?

Who is he that stands and weeps at the grave where Lazarus sleeps?

Who is he the gathering throng greet with loud triumphant song?

Lo at midnight who is he prays in dark Gethsemane?

Who is he on yonder tree dies in grief and agony?

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?

Tis the lord oh Wondrous story

Tis the Lord the king of glory

At his feet we humbly fall

Crown him, Crown him Lord of all

Yours in crowning him Lord of all,
