AT THE SEPULCRE
MORNING

Nos. 36 & 37: SOLO and ARIA (Soprano)

"Where Have They Laid Him...Lord, Why Hidest Thou Thy Face"

MIDI Symbol


Soprano.
  Where have they laid Him?
    Who will roll away the stone?
  I shall go to Him, but He shall not return to me.
Woe is me, woe is me,
    for the Lord hath added grief to my sorrow.
  I fainted in my sighing,
    And I find no rest!

Aria

  Lord, why hidest Thou thy face?
Lord, why hidest Thou thy face?
    Lover and friend hast Thou put away from me,
      and hid my acquaintance out of my sight.
    Lover and friend hast Thou put away from me,
      and hid my acquaintance out of my sight.
    I am in misery and at the point to die.
      Lord, why sleepest thou?
Why sleepest Thou?
    Lord, awake, awake and be not absent for ever!
  Lord, why hidest Thou thy face?
Lord, why hidest Thou thy face?
      why hidest Thou thy face?
    Lover and friend hast Thou put away from me,
      and hid my acquaintance out of my sight.
    I am in misery and at the point to die.
  Lord, why sleepest Thou?
      Awake and be not absent from us for ever!
