Latinised Hymns

Who is he, in yonder stall

Who is he, in yonder stall,
At whose feet the shepherds fall?
'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, in yonder cot,
Bending to his toilsome lot?

Who is he, in deep distress,
Fasting in the wilderness?

Who is he that stands and weeps
At the grave where Lazarus sleeps?

Lo, at midnight, who is he
Prays in dark Gethsemane?

Who is he, in Calvary's throes,
Asks for blessings on his foes?

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 worlds alone?

B.R.Hanby

Adorante rustico
coetu quis in stabulo?
CHRISTUS ILLE PRAEDICANDUS
GLORIAEQUE REX MIRANDUS!
ADORANTES OMNIUM
REDIMITE DOMINUM!

Quis manu fabricia
hic laborat in casa?

Quis in solitudine
esurit miserrime?

Quis sopore conditi
flet sepulchrum Lazari?

Cuius en! Gethsemanes
in tenebris hae preces?

Quis in Cruce pendulus
orat pro nocentibus?

Quis, cum post sepultus sit,
nobis opifer venit?

Hic quis e throno sedens
unus omne dirigens?
