Ab, parlate che forse tacendo
Non mi dite che il figlio morì
Introduced into the Oratorio of Judah.
The arm of the Lord is upon them,
None can escape His fury;
The sword of the Lord devoureth them all.
The Lord, he will have mercy ;
In peace He keepeth Zion.
RECITATIVE, AIR, AND CHORUS.-Samson. HANDEL.
O loss of sight! of thee I most complain :
Total eclipse! no sun, no moon!
first created beam! and thou great Word!
SOLO, AND CHORUS.-HANDEL.
As from the power of sacred lays,
So when the last and dreadful hour,
The dead shall live, the living die,
END OF THE SECOND PART.
An interval of Five Minutes between the Second and Third Parts.
From the censer curling rise,
Grateful incense to the skies;
Happy, happy, Solomon.
Live, live for ever, pious David's son:
Domine, labia mea aperies,
Et os meum annuntiabit laudem tuam.
Your harps and cymbals sound
To great JEHOVAH'S praise,
Your willing voices raise.
Relieve thy champion, image of thy strength;
Return O God of Hosts! return!
Praise the Lord with harp and tongue,
He's in mercy ever strong;
Praise the Lord through every state,
God alone is just and wise.
SONG.-Triumph of time and truth.-HANDEL.
Pleasure, my former ways resigning
Thee, Pleasure, now I leave;
Lest when my spirits fail me,
DOUBLE CHORUS.-Gloria Patri,-LEO.
(Taken from the Fitzwilliam Music,)
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.
Mr. W. KNYVETT, Mr. VAUGHAN, and
On Thee each living soul awaits,
From Thee, O Lord, they beg their meat;
Thou openest thy hand,
And sated all they are.
But when from them thy face is hid,
With sudden terror they are struck ;
Thou takest their breath away;
They vanish into dust,
Thou lettest thy breath go forth again,
New force and new delights.
DOUBLE CHORUS.-Israel in Egypt.-HANDEL. The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.
For the host of Pharaoh went in with his chariots, and with his horsemen, into the sea. And the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them, but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.
The Lord shall reign för ever and ever.
And Miriam the Prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances: and Miriam answered them:
Sing ye unto the Lord, for He hath triumphed gloriously; The horse and his rider hath He thrown into the sea.
The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.
GRAND DOUBLE CHORUS.
I will sing unto the Lord, for He hath triumphed gloriously: The horse and His rider hath he thrown into the sea:
