G. F. Handel: Foundling Hospital Anthem

 
 
1. Arie S
Blessed are they that consider the poor and needy,
The Lord will deliver them in time of trouble,
The Lord preserve them and comfort them.
2. Chorus
Blessed are they that consider the poor and needy,,
The Lord will deliver them in time of trouble,
The Lord preserve them and comfort them.
They deliver the poor that crieth, the fatherless,
and him that hat none to help him.
O God who from the suckling's mouth
Ordaineth early praise
Of such as worship thee in truth,
Accept the humble lays.
3. Aria A
O God who from the suckling's mouth
Ordaineth early praise
Of such as worship thee in truth,
Accept the humble lays.
4. Quartet SSAT and Chorus
The Charitable shall be had in everlasting remembrance,
And the good will shine as the brightness of the firmament.
5. Chorus
Comfort them, O Lord, when they are sick,
Make Thou their bed in sickness.
Keep them alive, let them be blessed upon the earth,
And not deliver them unto their foes.
6. Duet SS
the People will tell of their wisdom,
and the congregation will shew forth their praise.
Their reward also is with the Lord,
And the care of them is with the Most High.
7. Chorus
Hallelujah!
For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth,
The kingdom of this world is become
The kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ;
And He shall reign for ever and ever.
King of kings, and Lord of lords,
Hallelujah!
Psalm 41:1-3; 72:12-13; 112: 3-7
