George Frideric Handel’s autograph manuscript of the title page of Messiah, 1741 (Photo via Wikipedia)
1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.
3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Comfort ye (recitative), from Messiah (1741) by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)
