Contents: Ouverture --
Menuet. Act 1. It must be so --
or these vile Ammonites --
Pour forth no --
No more to Ammon's god and king --
But Jephtha comes --
Virtue my soul shall still embrace --
'Twill be a painfull separation --
In gentle murmurs --
Happy this embassy --
Dull delay --
Ill suits the voice of love --
Take the heart --
I go --
These labours past --
What mean these doubtful fancies --
If, Lord, sustain'd by thy almighty pow'r --
'Tis said --
O God, behold our sore distress --
Some dire event --
Scenes of horror --
Say, my dear mother --
The smiling dawn of happy days --
Such, Jephtha, was the haughty king's reply --
When his loud voice. Act II. Glad tidings of great joy --
Cherub and Seraphim --
Up the dreadful steep ascending --
'Tis well --
Tune the soft melodious lute --
Heav'n smiles once more --
His mighty arm --
In glory high --
Symphony --
Hail, glorious conqueror! --
Welcome, as the cheerful light --
Horror! Confusion! --
Open thy marble jaws --
Why is my brother thus afflicted? --
First perish thou --
If such thy cruel purpose ; lo! --
On me let blind mistaken zeal --
Spare my child! --
Such news flies swift --
For joys so vast --
Happy they --
Deeper and deeper still --
How dark, O Lord, are thy decrees! Act III. Hide thou thy hated beams --
A father, off'ring up his only child --
Waft her, angels --
Ye sacred priests --
Farewell, ye limpid springs and floods --
Doubtful fear --
Symphony --
Rise, Jephtha --
Happy, Iphis, shalt thou live --
For ever blessed be thy holy name --
Theme sublime of endless praise --
Let me congratulate --
Laud her, all ye virgin train --
O let me fold thee in a mother's arms --
Sweet as sight to the blind --
With transport, Iphis --
'Tis Heav'n's all-ruling pow'r --
My faithful Hamor --
Freely I to Heav'n resign --
Ye house of Gilead. Appendix I. Music replaced before th first performance: Laud her, all ye virgin train. Appendix II. Music for the 1756 revival: In gentle mumurs --
Again Heav'n smiles --
Freedom now once more possessing --
Zebul, thy deeds were valiant --
O let me fold thee in a mother's arms --
Sweet as sight to the blind. Appendix III. Movements without a date: These labours past --
My faithful Hamor --
All that is in Hamor mine.
