PART THE FIRST
The Prophesies and the Fulfillment
RECITATIVE-(Tenor) - Comfort ye,
comfort ye my people, saith your God;
speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem;
and cry unto her, that her warfare is
accomplished, that her iniquity is par-
The voice of him that crieth in the
wilderness, "Prepare ye the way of
the Lord, make straight in the desert
a highway for our God."
AIR-(Tenor) -Every valley shall be
exalted, and every mountain and hill
made low; the crooked straight, and
the rough places plain.
CHORUS-And the glory of the Lord
shall be revealed, and all flesh shall
see it together-for the mouth of the
Lord hath spoken it.
RECITATIVE-(Bass)-Thus saith the
Lord of Hosts:-Yet once a little while
and Ir will shake the heavens, and the
earth, the sea and the dry land; and
I will shake all nations, and the desire
of all nations shall come.
The Lord, whom ye seek, shall sud-
denly come to his temple, even the mes-
senger of the covenant whom ye delight
in; Behold, He shall come, saith the
Lord of Hosts.

RECITATIVE-(Alto)-Behold, a Vir-

up into the high mountains; 0 thou,
that tellest good tidings to Jerusalem,

the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
RECITATIVE - (Bass) - For behold,
darkness shall cover the earth and
gross darkness the people; but the
Lord shall arise upon thee, and his
glory shall be seen upon thee and the
Gentiles shall come to thy light, and
kings to the brightness of thy rising.
AIR-(Bass)-The people that walked
in darkness have seen a great light,
and they that dwell in the land of the
shadow of death, upon them hath the
CHORUS-For unto us a child is born,
unto us a Son is given, and the govern-

His name shall be called Wonderful,
Counselor, the mighty God, the Ever-
lasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

shepherds abiding in the field, keeping
watch over their flocks by night.
RECITATIVE-(Soprano) -And lo! the
angel of the Lord came upon them,
and the glory of the Lord shone round
about them, and they were sore afraid.
RECITATIVE - (Soprano) - And the
angel said unto them, Fear not; for
behold, I bring you good tidings of
great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day, in the
