And the glory of the Lord

And He shall purify

O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion

For unto us a Child is born

Glory to God in the highest

His yoke is easy

Behold the Lamb of God

Surely He hath borne our griefs

And with His stripes we are healed

All we like sheep

He trusted in God

Lift up your heads, o ye gates

Let all the angels of God

The Lord gave the word

The sound is gone out

Let us break their bonds asunder

Hallelujah

Since by man came death

But thanks be to God

Worthy is the Lamb

Amen
