SAB and organ. From Mendelssohn's oratorio Christus. Incorporates the chorale Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern at the end. Dramatic and exciting, this is not an "abridged" version - the piece is included in its entirety. Not terribly easy, but a fine arrangement of the anthem for SAB choirs.
There shall a star from Jacob come forth, and a scepter from Israel rise up.
And dash in pieces princes and nations.
How bright appears the Morning Star
With mercy beaming from afar,
The host of heaven rejoices:
Holy, holy, yet most lowly,
Draw thou near us;
Come and hear us.
