Part II

19.     Behold the Lamb of God

20.     He was despised and rejected of Men

21.     Surely he hath borne our Griefs and carried our Sorrows

22.     And with His Stripes we are healed

23.     All we, like Sheep, have gone astray

24.     All they that see him laugh him to scorn

25.     He trusted in God

26.     They Rebuke hath broken his Heart

27.     Behold, and see

28.     He was cut off out of the Land of the Living

29.     But Thou didst not leave his Soul in Hell

30.     Lift up your Heads

31.     Unto which of the Angels said He at any time… Let all the Angels of God worship Him

32.     Thou art gone up on High

33.     The Lord gave the Word

34.     How beautiful are the Feet

35.     Why do the Nations so furiously rage together

36.     Let us break their Bonds asunder

37.     He that dwelleth in Heaven… Thou shalt break them with a Rod of Iron

38.     Hallelujah!




Part III

39.     I know that my Redeemer liveth

40.     Since by Man came Death

41.     Behold, I tell you a Mystery

42.     The trumpet shall sound

43.     Then shall be brought to pass… O Death, where is thy Sting?

44.     But Thanks be to God

45.     If God be for us

46.     Worthy is the Lamb… Amen
