Who Is This One?




Who is this One that lies
Within a cattle stall
Beneath the angel-cloven skies?
He looks so frail and small
Why, this is Jesus Christ
The King of Kings who loves us all

Who is this One asleep
Not in a cradle kind
But where the sheep and oxen feed
His bed, hay and straw-lined 
Why, this is Jesus Christ
The One Redeemer for mankind

Who is this One wee babe
That shepherds first adored?
Because they did not doubt
But took the angels at their word
Why this is Jesus Christ
Only Savior, Only Lord 
 
A Star shines o’er His bed
Who is this precious One
Whose Mother bowed her head
And said ‘Thy will be done’? 
Why this is Jesus Christ
God the Father’s only Son

Pray tell, who is this One
Of which the angels spoke
As glory of the Lord
Shone over midnight’s slope
Why this is Jesus Christ
Our only Living Hope
