Choruses to be studied (time permitting)
4.         And the glory
7.         And he shall purify
12.       For unto us
24.       Surely he hath born our griefs
25.       And with his stripes
26.       All we like sheep
28.       He trusted in God
35.       Let all the angels of God
37.       The Lord gave the word
39.       Their sound is gone out
50.       O death, where is thy sting
51.       But thanks be to God
Appendix         Break forth into joy
