The Complete Handel's Messiah: Accompagnato and Air

Part III
A Hymn of Thanksgiving for the final overthrow of Death


47. Accompagnato (Bass)

Behold, I tell you a mystery;
we shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trumpet.
I Corinthians 15: 51-52

48. Air (Bass)

The trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption
and this mortal must put on immortality.
I Corinthians 15:52-53
