Chorus for good tidings

O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion,
get thee up into the high mountain.
O thou that tellest good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up
thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid;
say unto the cities of Judah, behold your God!
O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion,
arise, shine, for thy light is come,
and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
Isaiah 40:9; 60:1
