The Light of the World


No. 18: DUET

"Lord, behold"

MIDI Symbol

A Disciple (Tenor):
  Lord, behold he whom thou lovest is sick.

Baritone Solo:
  This sickness is not unto death,
but for the glory of God
that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
Let us go into Judæa again.

A Disciple (Tenor):
  Master, the Jews of late sought to stone Thee,
and goest Thou thither again?

Baritone Solo:
  Are there not twelve hours in the day?
If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not
because he seeth the light of this world.
But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth
because there is no light in him.
Our friend Lazarus sleepeth,
but I go that I may awake him out of sleep.

A Disciple (Tenor):
  Lord, if he sleep he shall do well.

Baritone Solo:
  Lazarus is dead, and I am glad for your sakes that I was not there,
to the intent that ye may believe;
Nevertheless, let us go unto him.

A Disciple (Tenor):
Let us also go
that we may die with him!
