Comfort ye my people
Ev'ry valley shall be exalted
And the glory of the Lord
Behold, a virgin shall conceive
O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth
The people that walked in darkness
For unto us a child is born
There were shepheards abiding in the field
Glory to God
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion
Then shall the eyes of the glind be opened
He shall feed his flock
His yoke is easy, his burthen is light
Behold the Lamb of God
He was despised
Surely he hath borne our griefs
Thy rebuke hath broken his heart
Behold, and see
He was cut off
But thou didst not leave his soul in hell
Lift up your heads, O ye gates
Why do the nations so furiously rage?
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 that was slain
