1_1. Overture.

    1_2. Heaven on Their Minds

Judas My mind is clearer now at last all to well
I can see where we all soon will be
If you strip away the myth from the man
You will see where we all soon will be
Jesus! You've started to believe
The things they say of you
You really do believe
This talk of God is true
And all the good you've done
Will soon get swept away
You've begin to matter more
Than the things you say
 
 
  Listen Jesus I don't like what I see
All I ask is that you listen to me
And remember I've been your right hand man all along
You have set them all on fire
They think they've found the new Messiah
And they'll hurt you when they find they're wrong
 
 
  I remember when this whole thing began
No talk of God then we called you a man
And believe me my admiration for you hasn't died
But everyword you say today
Gets twisted round some other way
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied
 
 
  Nazareth your famous son should have stayed a great unknown
Like his father carving wood he'd have made good
Tables chairs and oaken chests would have suited Jesus best
He'd have caused nobody harm no-one alarm
 
 
  Listen, Jesus, do you care for your race!
Don't you see we must keep in our place?
We are occupied have you forgotten how put down we are?
I'm frightened by the crowd
For we are gettin much too loud
And they'll crush us if we go too far
Listen, Jesus, to the warning I give
Please, remember that I want us to live
 
  But it's sad to see our chances weakening with every hoor
All your followers are blind
Too much heaven on their minds
It was beautiful but now it's sour
Yes it's all gone sour
 

1_3. What's the Buzz

 
Bethany, Friday Night
 
Apostles What's the buzz? Tell me, what's happening?  
Jesus Why should you want to know?
Don't you mind about the future,
Don't you try to think ahead,
Save tomorrow for tomorrow,
Think about today instead
 
Apostles What's the buzz? Tell me, what's happening?  
Jesus I could give you facts and figures -
I could give you plans and forecasts
Even tell you where I'm goin -
 
Apostles What's the buzz? Tell me, what's happening?  
Magdalene Let me try to cool down your face a bit  
Jesus That feels nice, so nice
Mary that is good
While you, prattle through your supper -
Where and when and who and how
She alone has tried to give me
What I need right here and now
 
Apostles What's the buzz? Tell me, what's happening?  

    1_4. Strange Thing, Mystifying

Judas It seems to me a strange thing mystifying
That a man like you can waste him time
On women of her kind
Yes I can understand that she amuses
But to let her stroke you, kiss your hair,
Is hardly in your line
It's not that I object to her profession
But she doesn't fit in well
With what you try to say
It doesn't help us if you're inconsistent
They only need a small excuse
To put us all away
 
Jesus Who are you to criticise her?
Who are you to despise her?
Leave her, leave her, let her be now
Leave her, leave her, she's with me now
If your state is clean then you can throw stones
If your state is not then leave her alone
I'm amazed, that man like you can be so
Shallow, thick and slow
That is not a man among you who
Knows or cares if I come or go
 
All
(save Judas)
No, you're wrong! You're very wrong!
How can you say that?
 
Jesus Not one not one of you!  

1_5. Everything's Alright

Magdalene Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh, don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine
And we want you to sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without you tonight
If we try we'll get by so forget all about us tonight
 
Ap. Women Everything's alright, yes, everything's alringht, yes  
Magdalene Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead, oh, then you'll feel
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your heap and feet
Close your eyes, close your eyes
And relax think of nothing tonight
 
Ap. Women Everything's alright, yes, everything's alringht, yes  
Judas Yoman, your fine ointment brand new and expensive
Could have been saved for the poor
Why has it been wasted? We could have raised maybe
Three hundred silver pieces or more
People who are hungry, people who are staruing
Matter more than your feet and hair
 
Magdalene Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, oh, don't you know
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine
And we want you to sleep well tonight
If we try we'll get by so forget all about us tonight
 
Ap. Women Everything's alright, yes, everything's alringht, yes  
Jesus Surely, you're not saying we have the resources
To save the poor from their lot?
There will be poor always, pathetically struggling -
Look at the good things you're got
Think! While you still have me
More! While you still see me
You'll be lost and you'll be so sorry when I'm gone
 
Magdalene Sleep and I shall soothe you, clam you, and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead, oh, then you'll feel
Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet
Close your eyes, close your eyes
And relax think of nothing tonight
Close your eyes, close your eyes and relax
 
All Everything's alright, yes, everything's alringht, yes  

1_6. This Jesus Must Di

 
Jerusalem, Sunday
 
Priestc 1 Good Caiaphas, the council waits for you

Caiaphas Oh, gentlemen you know why we are here
We've not much time and quite a problem here
 
Mob

Hosanna! Superstar!  
Annas Listen to that holdin mob of blockheads in the street!
A trick or two with lepers and the whole town's on it's feet
 
All He's dangerous!  
Mob

All He's dangerous!  
Mob

Priest 2 Look Caiaphas they're right outside our yard!  
Priest 3 Quick Caiaphas go call the roman guard  
Caiaphas No wait! We need a more permanent
Solution to our problem here
 
Annas What then to do about Jesus of Nazareth
Miracle of wonderman hero of fools?
 
Priest 3 No riots, no army, no fighting, no slogans  
Caiaphas One thing I'll say for him Jesus is cool  
Annas We dare not leave him to his own devices
His half-witted fans will get out of control
 
Priest 3 But how can we stop him? His glamour increases
By leaps every minute he's top of the poll
 
Caiaphas I see bad thing arisin the crowd crown him king
Which the romans would ban
I see blood and destruction our elimination because of one man
Blood and Destruction because of one man
 
All Because, because, because of one man  
Caiaphas Our elimination because of one man  
All Because of one 'cause of one 'cause of one man  
Priest 3 What then to do about this jesusmania?  
Annas How do we deal with the carpener king?  
Priest 3 Where do we start with a man, who is bigger
Than John was when John did his baptism thing?
 
Caiaphas Fools! You have no perception!
The stakes we are gamblin are frighteningly high
We must crush him completly -
So like John before him, this Jesus must die
For the sake of the nation this Jesus must die
 
All Must die, must die, this Jesus must die  
Caiaphas So like John before him, this Jesus must die  
All Must die, must die, this Jesus must, Jesus must, Jesus must die.  

1_7. Hosann

Crowd Hosanna heysanna sanna sanna ho
Sanna hey sanna ho sanna
Hey J.C., J.C. Won't you smile at me?
Sanna ho sanna hey, superstar
 
Caiaphas Tell the pabble to be quiet we anticipate a riot
This common crowd is much too loud
Tell the mob who sing your song that they are fools And they're wrong
They are a curse, they should disperse
 
Crowd Hosanna heysanna sanna sanna ho
Sanna hey sanna ho sanna
Hey J.C., J.C. You're alright by me
Sanna ho sanna hey superstar
 
Jesus Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting
If every tongue was still the noise would still continue
The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing
 
Crowd
(with Jesus)
Hosanna heysanna sanna sanna ho
Sanna hey sanna ho sanna
Hey J.C., J.C. Won't you fight for me?
Sanna ho sanna hey superstar
 

2_1. Simon Zealotes

Crowd Christ you know I love you, did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God so tell me that I saved
Christ you know I love you, did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God so tell me that I saved
Jesus I'm with you, touch me, touch me Jesus
Jesus I'm on your side, kiss me kiss me Jesus
 
Simon Christ, yhat more to you need to convince you
That you've made it and you're easily as strong
As the fifth from Rome who rape our country
And who terrorized our people so long?
 
Crowd Crist you know I love you, did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God so tell me that I'm saved
Jesus I'm with you, touch me, touch me Jesus
Jesus I'm in your side, kiss me, kiss me Jesus
 
Simon There must be over fifty thousand
Screaming love and more for you
Everyone of fifty thousand
Would do whatever you ask him you
Keep them yelling their devotion
But add a touch of hate at Rome
You will rise to a greater power
We will win ourselves a home
You'll get the power and the glory
For ever and ever and ever. Amen! Amen!
 

2_2. Poor Jerusale

Jesus Neither you Simon, nor the fifty thousand
Nor the romans, nor the jews, nor judas, nor the twelve
Nor the priests, nor the scribes
Nor doomed Jerusalem itself
Understand what power is
Understand what glory is
Understand at all, understand at all
If you knew all that I knew, my poor Jerusalem
You'd see the truth, but you close your eyes
But you close your eyes
While you live your troubles are many, poor Jer.
To conquer death you only have to die
You only have to die.
 

2_3. Pilate's Drea

 
Pontius Pilate's House, Monday
 
Pilate I dreamed I met a galilean
A most amazing man
He had that look you very rarely find
The haunting hunted kind
I asked him to say what had happened
How it all began
I asked again he never said a word
As if he hadn't heard
And next the room was full of wild and angry men
They seemed to hate this man -
They fell on him and then
They disappeared again
Then I saw thousand of millions
Crying for this man
And then I heard them mentioning my name
And leaving me the blame
 

2_4. The Templ

Moneylenders and merchants Roll on up for my price is down
Come on in for the best in town
Take your pick of the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine
Name your price I've got everything
Come and buy it's all going fast
Borrow cash on the finest torms
Hurry now while stocks still last
 
Jesus My temple should be a house of prayer
But you have made it a den of thieves
Get out! Get out!
My time is almost through
Little left to do
After all I've tried for three years
Seems like thirty
Seems like thirty!
 
Crowd See my eyes I can hardly see
See my stand I can hardly walk
I believe you can make me whole
See my tongue I can hardly talk
See my sking I'm a mass of blood
See my legs I can hardly stand
I believe you can make me well
Will you touch will you mend me Christ
Won't you touch will you heal me Christ
Will you kiss you can cure me Christ
Won't you kiss, won't you pay me Christ
 
Jesus There's too many of you don't push me
There's too little of me don't crowd me
Heal yourselves!
 

2_5. Everything's Alright

Magdalene Try not to get worried try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you, on, don't you know
Everything's alright, yes everything's fine
 
Jesus And I think I shall sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without me tonight
 
Magdalene Close your eyes, close your eyes
And forget all about us tonight
 

2_6. I Don't Know How To Love Hi

Magdalene I don't know how to love him
What to do how to move him
I've been changed, yes really changed
In these past few days when
I've been myself I seem like someone else
I don't know how to take this
I don't see why he moves me
He's a man, he's just a man
And I've had so many men before
In very many ways, he's just one more
Should I bring him down, should I scream and shout
 
  Should I sreak of love, let my feeling's out
I never thought I'd come to this what's it all about
Don't you think it's rather funny
I should be in this position
I'm the one who's always been
So calm, so cool, no lover's fool
Running every show he scares me so
I never thought, I'd come to this what's it all about
 
  Yet if he said he loved me
I'd be lost, I'd be frightened
I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope
I'd turn my head, I'd back away
I wouldn't want to know
He scares me so
I want him so, I love him so
 

2_7. Damned For All Ti

 
Tuesday
 
Judas Now if I help you it matters that you see
These sordid kind of things are comin hard to me
It's taken me come time to work out what to do
I weighed the whole thing up before I come to you
I have no thought at all about my own reward
I really didn't come here of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time
 
  I come because I had to I'm the one who saw
Jesus can't control it like he did before
And further more I know that Jesus thinks so too
Jesus wouldn't wind that I was here with you
I have no thought at all about my own reward
I really didn't come here of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time!
 
  Annas, you're a friend, a wordly man and wise
Caiaphas my friend I know you sympathise
Why are we prophets? Why are we the ones?
Who see the sad solution know what must be done
I have no thought at all about my own reward
I really didn't come here of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time
 
Annas

Cut the protesting forget the excuses
..

 
Caiaphas We'll pay you in silver cash on the nail
We just need to know where the soldier can find him
..
 
Annas With no crowd around him  
Caiaphas Then we can't fail  

2_8. Blood Mon

Judas I don't need your blood money!  
Caiaphas Oh, that doesn't matter our expenses are good  
Judas I don't want your blood money!  
Annas But you might as well take it we think that you should  
Caiaphas Think of the things you can do with that money
Choose any charity give to the poor
We've noted your motives we're noted your feelings
This isn't blood money it's a fee nothing
Fee nothing, fee nothing more!
 
Judas On Thursday night you'll find him where you want him
Far from the crowds in the garden of Gethsemane
 
Choir Well done Judas
Good old Judas
 

3_1. The Last Supper

 
Thursday Night
 
Apostles Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
Don't distorb me now I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll still talk about us when we're died
 
Jesus The end
Is just a little harder when brought about by friends
For all you care this wine could be my blood
For all you care this bread could be my body
The end!
This is my blood you drink
This is my body you eat
If you would remember me when you eat and drink
I must be mad thinking I'll be remembered yes
I must be out of my head!
Look at your blanc faces! My name will mean nothing
Ten minutes after I'm dead
One of you denies me
One of you betrays me
 
Apostles Not I! Who would? Impossible!  
Jesus Whi don't you go do it?  
Judas You want me to do it!  
Jesus Hurry, they are waiting  
Judas If you knew why I do it!  
Jesus I don't care why you do it!  
Judas To think I admired you
For now I despise you
 
Jesus You liar you Judas  
Judas You want me to do it!
What if I just stayed here
And ruines your ambition?
Christe, you deserve it!
 
Jesus Hurry you fool, hurry and go
Save me your speaches, I don't want to know go!
 
Apostles Look at all my trials  
Judas You sad pathetic man see where you've brought us to
Our ideals die around us all because of you
And now the saddest out of all
Someone has to turn you in
Like a common criminal, like a wounded animal
A jaded mandarin
A jaded mandarin
A jaded faded mandarin!
 
Jesus Get out! They're waiting!They're waiting for you!  
Judas Everytime I look at you I don't understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned
 
Apostles Look at all my trials  
Judas Will no-one stay awake with me?
Peter? John? James?
Will no-one stay awake with me?
Peter? John? James?
 

3_2. Gethseman

 
Garden of Gethsemane
 
Jesus I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cap away
From me for I don't waint to taste it's poison
Feel it burn me
I have changed I'm not as sure
As when we started
Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
Listen surely, I've exceeded expectations
Tried for three years seems like thirty
Could you ask as much from any other man?
 
  But if I die
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree
I'd wanna know, I'd wanna know, my God
I'd wanna see, I'd wanna see, my God
Why I should die?
Would I be more noticed than I was ever before?
Would the things I've said and done matter any more?
 
  I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my
Lord I'd have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord
If I die, what will be my reward? I'd have to know,
I'd have to know, my Lord
Why should I die?
Can you show me now that would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain
Show me there's a reason for your wantin me to die
You're far too keen on where and how and not so hot on why
 
  Allright I'll die!
Just watch me die!
See now I die!
Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
After all I've tried for three years seems like ninety
Why then amiscared to finish what I started
What you started I didn't start it
God thy will is hard
But you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison, nail me to the cross and break me
Bleed me, beat me, kill me, take me now before I change my mind
 

3_3. The Arrest

Judas There he is! They're all asleep the fools!  
Jesus Judas! Must you betray me with a kiss?  
Peter What's the buzz? Tell me, what's happening?  
Peter and
apostles
What's the buzz? Tell me, what's happening?
Hang on Lord, we've gonna fight for You
 
Jesus Put away your swords
Don't you know that it's all over?
It was nice but now it's gone
Why are you obsessed with fighting?
Stick to fishing from now on
 
Crowd Tell me Christ how you feel tonight?
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were you big mistakes?
Do you think that you may retire?
Did you think you would get much higher?
How do you view your coming trial?
Have your men proved at all worthwhile?
Come with us to see Caiaphas
You'll just love the high priest's house
You'll just love seein Caiaphas
You'll just die in the high priest's house
Come on God this is not like you
Let us know what you're gonna do
You know what your supporters feel
You'll escape in the final reel
Tell me Christ how you feel tonight
You'll just die in the high priest's house
Now we have him! Now we have got him!
 
Caiaphas Jesus You must realise the serious charges facing you
You say you're the son of God in all your handouts
Well is it true?
 
Jesus That's what you say you say that I am  
Annas There you have it gentlemen what more evidence do we need?
Judas thank you for the victim stay a while and you'll see it bleed!
 
Crowd How we have him! No we have got him!
Take him to Pilate!
 

3_4. Peter's Denial

Maid by
the fire
I think I've seen you somewhere I remember
You were with that man they took away
I recognize your face
 
Peter You've got a the wrong man lady I don't know him
and I wasn't were he was tonight never near the place
 
Soldier That's strange for I am sure I saw you with him
You were right by his side and yet you denied
 
Peter I tell you I was never ever with him  
Old man But I saw you too it looked just like you  
Peter I don't know him!  
Magdalene Peter, don't you know what you have said
You've gone and cut him dead
 
Peter I had to do it don't you see?
Or else they'd go for me
 
Magdalene It's what he told us you would do
I wonder how he knew
 

 

3_5. Pilate and Christ

 
Friday
 
Pilate Who is this broken man cluttering up my hallway?
Who is this unfortunate?
 
Soldier Someone Christ king of the jews  
Pilate Oh so this is Jesus Christ, I am really quite surprised
You look so small not a king at all
We all know that you are news but are you king?
King of the jews?
 
Jesus That's what you say  
Pilate What do you mean of by that?
That is not an answer
You're deep in trouble friend
Someone Christ king of the jews
You can someone in your state be so cool about your fate?
An amazin thing this silent king
Since you come from Galilee then you need not come to me
You're Herod's race! You're Herod's case!
 
Mob Hosanna hey sanna sanna sanna ho
Sanna hey sanna ho and how
Hey J.C., J.C. Please explain for me
You had everything where is it now?
 

3_6. King Herod's Song

Herod Jesus, I am overjoyed to meet you face to face
You've been getting quite a name all around the place
Healing cripples, raising from the dead
and now I understand you're God at least that's what you've said
So you're the Christ,you're the Great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you're divine change my water into wine
That's all you need do and I'll know it's all true
C'mon, King of the jews
 
  Jesus, you must won't believe the hit you're made round here
You're all we talk about the wonder of the year
Oh, what a pity if it's all a lie
Still I'm sure that you can rock the cinics if you try
So you're the Christ,you're the Great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you're no fool, walk across my swimming pool
If you do that for me then I'll let you go free
C'mon, King of the jews
 
  I only ask things I'd ask any superstar
What is it that you have got that puts you where you are?
I am waiting, yes, I'm a captive fan
I'm dying to be shown that you're not just any man
So if you are the Christ, yes, the Great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread you can do it on your head
Or has something gone wrong? Why do you take so long?
C'mon, King of the jews
 
  Hey! Aren't you scared of me, Christ? Mister wonderful Christ!
You're a joke, you're not the Lord you're nothing but a fraud
Take him away He's got nothing to say!
Get out you, King of the jews! Get out of my life!
 

4_1. Judas' Death

Judas My God! I saw him he looked three-quarters dead!
and he was so bad I had to turn my head
You beat him so hard that he was bent and lame
and I know who everybody's gonna blame
I don't believe he knows i acted for our good
I'd save him all this suffering if I could,
 
 
don't believe Our good
Save him If I could
 
Priest3 Cut the confessions forget the excuses
I don't understand why you're filled with remorse
All that you've said has come true with a vengeance
The mob turned against him you backed the right horse
 
Caiaphas What you have done will be the saving of Israel
You'll be remembered forever for this
and not only that you've been paid for your efforts
Pretty good wages for one little kiss
 
Judas Christ! I know you can't hear me
But I only did what you wanted me to Christ!
I'd sell out the nation
For I have been saddled with the murder of you
I have been spattered with innocent blood
I shall be dragged through the sline and the mud!
I have been spattered with innocent blood
I shall be dragged through the sline and the mud!
I don't know how to love him
I don't know why he moves me
He's a man He's just a man
He is not a king He is just the same
As anyone I know
He scares me so
When he's cold and dead will he let me be?
Does he love me too? Does he care for me?
My mind is darkness now my God I am sick, I've been used
and You knew all the time
God! I'll never ever know why you chose me for your crime
For your fool bloody crime
You have murdered me! You have murdered me!
 
Choir Poor old Judas!
So long Judas!
 

4_2. Trial Before Pilate (including the 39 lashes)

Pilate And so the king is once again my guest!
And why is this? Was Herod unimpressed?
 
Caiaphas We turn to Rome to sentence Nazareth
We have no low to put a man to death
We need him crucified it's all you have to do
We need him crucified it's all you have to do
 
Pilate Talk to me, Jesus Christ
You have been brought here manacied, beaten
By your own people do you have the first idea why you deserue it?
Listen, King of the jews, where is your kingdom?
Look at me am I a jew?
 
Jesus I have got no kingdom in this world
I'm through, through, through
 
Mob Talk to me, Jesus Christ  
Jesus These may be a kingdom for me somewhere
If I only knew
 
Pilate Then you're a king?  
Jesus It's you that say I am
I look for truth and find that I get damned
 
Pilate But what is truth? Is truth unchanging law?
We both have truth are mine the same as yours?
 
Mob Crucify him!  
Pilate What do you mean? You'd crucify your king?  
Mob We have no king but Caesar!  
Pilate He's done no wrong no not the slightest thing  
Mob We have no king but Caesar! Crucify him!  
Pilate I see no reason I find no evil
This man is harmless so why does he upset you?
He's just misquided thinks he's important
But to keep you vultures happy I shall flog him
 
Mob Crucify him!  
 
( 39 lashes )
 
Pilate Where are you from, Jesus?
What do you want, Jesus? Tell me
You've got to be careful you could be dead soon could well be
Why do you not speak when I have your life in my hands?
How can you stay quiet? I don't believe you understand
 
Jesus You have nothing in your hands
Any power you have comes to you from far beyond
Everthing is fihed and you can't change it
 
Pilate You're a fool, Jesus Christ how can I help you?  
Mob Pilate! Crucify him!
Remember Caesar you have a duty
To keep the peace so crucify him
Remember Caesar you'll be demoted
You'll be deported Crucify him!
 
Pilate Don't let me stop your great self-destruction
Die if you want to you misquided martyr
I wash my hands of your demolition
Die if you want to you innocent puppet!
 

4_3. Superstar

Voice of Judas Every time I look at you I don't understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned
Why'd you choose such a backward time and such a strange land?
If you'd come today you would have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4bc had no mass communication
Don't you get me wrong I only want to know
 
Choir Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrifices?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?
 
Voice
of Judas
Tell me what you think about your friends at the top?
Who'd you think besides yourself is the pick of the crop?
Buddah was he where it's at? Is he where you are?
Could Mahomet move a mountain or was that just P.R.?
Did you mean to die like that? Whas that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death would be a record-breaker?
Don't you get me wrong I only want to know
 
Choir Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrifices?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?
 

4_4. The Crucifixio

Jesus God forgive them they don't know what they're doing
Who is my mother? Where is my mother?
My God, my God, why have you forgotten me?
I am thirsty, my God, I am thirsty!
It is finished
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit
 

4_5. John Nineteen Forty One.

 
(Instrumental)
 
  [Now in the place where he was crucified there
was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre,
wherein was never man yet laid.]
