PART I

1  Sinfony
2  Comfort ye, my people
3  Evíry valley shall be exalted
4  And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed
5  Thus saith the Lord of Hosts
6  But who may abide the day of his coming
7  And he shall purify
8  Behold, a virgin shall conceive
9  O thou that tellest good tidings
10  For behold, darkness shall cover the earth
11  The people that walked in darkness
12  For unto us a Child is born
13  Pifa (Pastoral Symphony)
14  There were shepherds abiding in the field
15  And the angel said unto them
16  And suddenly there was with the angel
17  Glory to God in the highest
18  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion
19  Then shall the eyes of the blind
20  He shall feed his flock
21  His yoke is easy, and his burthen is light

PART II

22  Behold the Lamb of God
23  He was despised
24  Surely, he hath borne our griefs
25  And with his stripes we are healed
26  All we like sheep have gone astray
27  All they that see him
28  He trusted in God
29  Thy rebuke hath broken his heart
30  Behold, and see if there be any sorrow
31  He was cut off out of the land
32  But Thou didst not leave his soul
33  Lift up your heads, O ye gates
34  Unto which of the angels
35  Let all the angels of God worship him
36  Thou art gone up on high
37  The Lord gave the word
38  How beautiful are the feet
39  Their sound is gone out
40  Why do the nations so furiously rage
41  Let us break their bonds asunder
42  He that dwelleth in heaven
43  Thou shalt break them
44  Hallelujah

PART III

45  I know that my Redeemer liveth
46  Since by man came death
47  Behold, I tell you a mystery
48  The trumpet shall sound
49  Then shall be brought to pass
50  O death, where is thy sting?
51  But thanks be to God
52  If God be for us
53  Worthy is the Lamb that was slain - Amen
