Who Is He?

I saw this at Barbara’s tonight and wanted to share it with you.

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!

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?


~ Ben­ja­min R. Han­by, 1866

    I just did a several day meditation on this beautiful hymn on my blog. I thought it provided great material for thinking about who Jesus is and how we can be more like Him in the new year. It’s a great hymn!!!
