Excerpt from Paradise Lost: Symphonic Poem in a Prologue and Three Parts for Solo Voices, Chorus, Orchestra and Organ Chorus: All hail Great God All hail Almighty Being, Eternal Power Who at Thy Word evolved from chaos A world of glory - from darkness light; And lit the Heavens with splendor, And the planets in thousands fulfilling Thy bidding, moving in ceaseless ﬂight 'mid the blue Heaven in measureless duration, gthy mighty Will obeying, Show forth Thy glory, world without end. All hail From mortal eyes, clearer beaming, Smiles forth the golden joy of living; See now the ﬂowers, in the meadows growing, O'er moor and field their fragrance yield Like incense rising to Thee.
