Who is He in yonder stall

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,
  Crown Him! crown Him, Lord of all!
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 who from the grave
Comes to succor, help, and save?
Who is He who from His throne
Rules through all the worlds alone?

This a great rehearsal of the gospel narrative but as such verse 9 is very weak. What happened to the resurrection? When we declare that we believe in the resurrection of the body we are saying that we place our confidence in Christ's bodily resurrection because this means that ours (those who are in Christ) will surely follow. Paul says that if Christ is not raised we are still in our sins.

Yeshua is LORD

LORD in the OT is YHVH

YHVH means I AM WHO I AM. Exodus 3

YHVH in Hebrew is Yod Heh Va Heh

These four letters are known as the Tetragrammaton. Taken separately they mean HAND LOOK NAIL. LOOK !!!!!!!

John 8 : 24 Yeshua said "if you don't believe that I AM WHO I AM you will die in your sins"

I remember singing this song as a child. This morning I heard it play in my head and decided to google it. I am glad it did. It soothes the soul!

This hymn always reminds me of God's greatest gift to us if we believe on His Son we can have our sins forgiven and know peace with God, and may we worship Him, adore Him and bring praise and honour to His Holy Name.

I remember singing this hymn during family prayers right from grandma's time & I feel children should be taught this hymn. A wonderful hymn by Benjamin Russell Hanby on the Lord Jesus the King of glory .
