The Complete Handel's Messiah: Accompagnato and Aria

Part I
The prophesy and realization of God's plan to redeem mankind by the coming of the Messiah


2. Accompagnato (Tenor)

Comfort ye,
comfort ye my people,
saith your God.
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem,
and cry unto her,
that her warfare is accomplish'd,
that her Iniquity is pardoned.
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness;
prepare ye the way of the Lord;
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Isaiah 40:1-3

3. Air (Tenor)
Ev'ry valley shall be exalted,
and ev'ry mountain and hill made low;
the crooked straight, and the rough places plain.
Isaiah 40:4
