Pt. 1. Christmas section. Overture -- Comfort ye, my people -- Every valley shall be exaulted -- And the glory of the Lord -- Thus saith the Lord -- But who may abide -- And he shall purify -- Behold, a virgin shall conceive -- O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion -- For unto us a child is born -- Pastoral symphony -- There were shepherds -- And, lo! the angel of the Lord came upon them -- And the angel said unto them -- And suddenly there was with the angel -- Glory to God -- Rejoice greatly, o daughter of Zion -- There shall the eyes of the blind be opened -- He shall feed his flock -- Lift up your heads -- Why do the nations -- Let us break their bonds asunder -- He that dwelleth in heaven -- Thou shalt break them -- Hallelujah!

Pt. 2. Easter section. Behold the Lamb of God -- He was despised -- And with his stripes we are healed -- All we like sheep have gone astray -- All they that see him -- He trusted in God -- Thy rebuke hath broken his heart -- Behold and see if there be any sorrow -- He was cut off -- I know that my Redeemer liveth -- Since by man came death -- Behold I tell you a mystery -- The trumpet shall sound -- Worthy is the lamb, blessing and honour, glory and power be unto him.
