Part I
Comfort ye my people
Every valley shall be exalted
And the glory of the Lord
Thus saith the Lord
But who may abide the day of His coming
Behold, a virgin shall conceive
0 thou that tellest good tidings to Zion
For unto us a Child is born
There were shepherds abiding in the field
And lo! the angel of the Lord came upon them
And the angel said unto them
And suddenly there was with the angel
Glory to God
Part II
Behold the Lamb of God
lie was despised
Come unto Him
Surely He hath borne our griefs
And with His stripes
Thy rebuke hath broken His heart
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow
He was cut off
But Thou didst not leave
Lift up your heads
INTERMISSION
Part III
Behold, I tell you a mystery The trumpet shall sound Then shall be brought to pass
0 death, where is thy sting
Why do the nations so furiously rage
1 know that my Redeemer liveth Worthy is the Lamb Hallelujah
