1 Who is this so weak and helpless,
Child of lowly Hebrew maid, Rudely in a stable sheltered,
Coldly in a manger laid ? 'Tis the Lord of all creation,
[trod; Who this wondrous path hath He is God from everlasting,
And to everlasting God. 2 Who is this a man of sorrows,
Walking sadly life's hard way, Homeless, weary, sighing, weeping,
Over sin and Satan's sway?
Who above the starry sky
Where no tear can dim the eye.
3 Who is this—behold Him shedding
Drops of blood upon the ground ? Who is this-despised, rejected,
Mocked, insulted, beaten, bound ? 'Tis our God, who gifts and graces,
On His Church now poureth down, Who shall smite in holy vengeance
All His foes beneath His throne. 4 Who is this that hangeth dying,
With the thieves on either side; Nails His hands and feet are tearing,
And the spear hath pierced His side ? 'Tis the God who ever liveth,
'Mid the shining ones on high, In the glorious golden city

the spoil He bears ?
1 Who is this that comes from Edom, 2 'Tis the Saviour, now victorious,
All His raiment stained with blood ; Travelling onward in His might, To the slave proclaiming freedom;
'Tis the Saviour, oh how glorious Bringing and bestowing good:
To His people is the sight! Glorious in the garb He wears,
Jesus now is strong to save, Glorious in the spoil He bears ?
Mighty to redeem the slave.
'Tis the blood of many slain;
None the contest to maintain.
4 This the Saviour has effected
By His mighty arm alone;
'Tis an everlasting throne !
5 Mighty Victor, reign for ever!
Wear the crown, so dearly won;
Cease to sing what Thou hast done.
And their tes

1 WORDS åre things of little cost,
Quickly spoken, quickly lost;
For us or against us there.
Idle words and words of sin;
Leaving bitter thoughts behind! 3 Grant us, Lord, from day to day,
Strength to watch and grace to pray
