Zion’s Daughter (Rejoice Greatly) – Hearty Hymns from A to Z




George Frideric Handel’s Messiah oratorio is one of the most recognized musical compositions in all of Christendom. The famous composer (1685-1759) drew lines largely from the Old Testament, and particularly from the Psalms and the prophetic book of Isaiah.

Although not technically a hymn, this recitative portion of Handel’s Messiah rings familiar:

 
Rejoice greatly,
O daughter of Zion Shout,
O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, thy King cometh unto thee!
He is the righteous Saviour,
And He shall speak peace unto the heathen.
