Introduction: The Representation Of Chaos
In The Beginning God Created The Heaven And The Earth - And The Spirit Of God
Now Vanish Before The Holy Beams - Despairing, Cursing Rage
And God Made The Firmament
The Glorious Heav'nly Hierarchy
And God Said: Let The Waters Under The Heaven Be Gathered Together
Rolling In Foaming Billows
And God Said: Let The Earth Bring Forth Grass
With Verdure Clad The Fields Appear
And The Heavenly Host The Third Day Proclaimed
Awake The Harp, The Lyre Awake
And God Said: Let There Be Lights In The Firmament Of Heaven
In Brightest Splendour Rises Now The Sun
The Heavens Are Telling The Glory Of God
And God Said: Let The Waters Bring Forth Abundantly
On Mighty Pens Uplifted Soars The Eagle
And God Created Great Whales
And The Angels Struck Their Immortal Harps
Most Beautiful Appear, With Verdure Young Adorn'd - The Lord Is Great
And God Said: Let The Earth Bring Forth The Living Creature
Straight Opening Her Fertile Womb
Now Heaven In Fullest Glory Shines
And God Created Man
In Native Worth And Honour Clad
And God Saw Ev'rything That He Had Made
Achieved Is The Glorious Work
In Rosy Mantle Now Appears
By Thee With Bliss, O Bounteous Lord
Our Duty Have We Now Perform'd
Graceful Consort!
O Happy Pair
Praise The Lord, Uplift Your Voices
