Who Is He in Yonder Stall

"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?
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 grace 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 grace comes to heal and help and save?
Who is He that from His throne rules through all the world alone?
 '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!
 
Blessings and love in Christ,
Ashley
Colossian 1:12-14
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

  1. That's beautiful! Is it a poem? A song? I've never heard it before. Who wrote it?

    1. Hi Bonnie!
      It's a song written by Benjamin Russell Hanby. Here's a link to a music video of the song if you would like to listen to it. :D
