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 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?

Chorus
'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!
- Benjamin Russel Hanby - 

{ picture of the manger scene drawn by my son }

Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
even lift them up, ye everlasting doors;
and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. 
Selah.
- Psalm 24:9, 10 -

Have a blessed Lord's Day, lovelies!

This was just beautiful, Stephanie.
I too have never heard of this before. I will hide these words in my heart and ponder on them, especially as Christmas nears closer and closer.
Your nativity's were all so lovely. They jogged my memory to that days they were given to you.
You always have such a beautiful way of photographing things.
Have a beautiful day!
Love you
