Description
Music From an anonymous 16th century galliard, "La Roque." Renaissancy and fun! Text by William Augustus Muhlenberg (1826). Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing, Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King! Zion, the marvelous story be telling, the Son of the Highest, how lowly his birth! the brightest archangel in glory excelling, he stoops to redeem thee, he reigns upon earth. Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing, Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King! Tell how he cometh; from nation to nation the heart cheering news let the earth echo round; how free to the faithful he offers salvation, his people with joy everlasting are crowned. Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing, Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King! Mortals, your homage be gratefully bringing, and sweet let the gladsome hosannas arise; ye angels, the full alleluias be singing; one chorus resound through the earth and the skies. Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing, Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King! Messiah is King!
