George Frideric Handel
Messiah (1742)
Comfort ye my people
Ev'ry valley shall be exalted
And the glory of the Lord
Thus saith the Lord of Hosts
But who may abide?
Behold! a virgin shall conceive
O thou that tellest good tidings
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth
The people that walked in darkness
For unto us a Child is born
Pastoral Symphony
There were shepherds
Glory to God in the Highest
Rejoice greatly
Then shall the eyes of the blind be opened
He shall feed His flock
Come unto Him
His yoke is easy
Behold the Lamb of God
He was despised
Surely He hath borne our griefs
And with His stripes we are healed
All we like sheep have gone astray
All they that see Him laugh Him to scorn
He trusted in God
Thy rebuke hath broken His heart
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow
Lift up your heas, O ye gates
How beautiful are the feet of them
Their sound is gone out into all lands
Why do the nations so furiously rage together?
Let us break their bonds asunder
He that dwelleth in Heaven
Thou shalt break them
I know that my redeemer liveth
Since by man came death
Behold I tell you a mystery
The trumpet shall sound
Worthy is the Lamb
