Contents: Overture. Part one. Mourn, ye afflicted children --
Well, brethren, may your sorrows flow-From this dread scene --
For Sion lamentation make --
Not vain is all this storm of grief-Pious orgies, pious airs (E-flat) --
Not vain is all this storm of grief (F) --
Not vain is all this storm of grief-Pious orgies, pious airs (G) --
Oh father, who almighty pow'r --
I feel, I feel the deity within-arm, arm, ye brave!-we come, we come, in bright array --
'Tis well, my friends-call forth thy pow'rs --
To Heav'n's almighty king we kneel-oh liberty, thou choicest treasure --
Come, ever-smiling liberty --
Oh Judas, may these noble views inspire-'Tis liberty, dear liberty alone --
Come, ever-smiling liberty --
Lead on, lead on! --
So will'd my father --
Disdainful of danger --
Ambition! if e'er honour was thine aim-No unhallow'd desire --
Oh Judas, may thy just pursuits inspire --
Hear us, oh Lord. Part two. Fall'n is the foe --
Victorious hero!-so rapid thy course is --
Sion now her head shall raise --
Oh let eternal honours-From mighty kings he took the spoil --
Hail, hail, Judea, happy land! --
Thanks to my brethren-How vain is man --
Oh Judas, oh my brethren! --
Ah! wretched, wretched Israel! --
Be comforted-The Lord worketh wonders --
My arms!-Sound an alarm!-We hear the pleasing, dreadful call --
Enough! To Heav'n we leave the rest-With pious hearts --
Ye worshippers of God --
Wise men, flatt'ring, may deceive us --
Oh! never, never bow we down-We never will bow down. Part three. Father of Heav'n! --
(Man) See, see yon flames --
(Woman) Oh grant it, Heav'n --
So shall the lute and harp awake --
(Messenger, From Capharsalama, on eagle wings I fly --
(Alto, bass) Yet more, Nicanor lies with thousands slain --
See, the conqu'ring hero comes! --
See the godlike youth advance --
See, the conqu'ring hero comes! --
March --
Sing unto God --
Sweet flow the strains-With honour let desert be crown'd --
Peace to my countrymen --
To our great God be all the honour giv'n --
Again to earth --
Oh lovely peace, with plenty crown'd-Let the shrill trumpet cease (Aria) --
Oh lovely peace, with plenty crown'd-Let the shrill trumpet cease (Duet) --
Rejoice, oh Judah!-Hallelujah! Amen.
Responsibility: George Frideric Handel.
