From Ode for St. Cecilia’s Day, HWV 76

From harmony, from heav’nly harmony

O praise the Lord with one consent
With cheerful notes let all the earth
Ye boundless realms of joy
Your voices raise, ye cherubim and seraphim

O come let us sing unto the Lord
Glory and worship are before him
There is sprung up a light for the righteous

Happy, happy we
Mourn, all ye muses
Galatea, dry thy tears
