What (sing-a-long choruses are in bold):
And the glory of the Lord (Chorus)
Thus saith the Lord
But who may abide the day of His coming?
Behold a virgin shall conceive
For unto us a child is born (Chorus)
There were shepherd abiding in the field
And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them
And the angel said to them
And suddenly there was an angel
Glory to God
He was despised
Surely He hath borne our griefs (Chorus)
And with His stripes we are healed (Chorus)
All we like sheep (Chorus)
Thy rebuke hath broken His heart
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow
He was cut off from the land of the living
But Thou didst not leave His soul in hell
Lift up your heads, o ye gates (Chorus)
How beautiful are the feet of them
Their sound is gone out (Chorus)
Why do the nations so furiously rage together?
I know that my redeemer liveth
Since by man came death (Chorus)
Behold, I tell you a mystery
The trumpet shall sound
Recitation from Revelations
Worthy is the Lamb/Amen (Chorus)
