^ PREFACE

IT is a remarkable fad that the Parable of the Prodigal Son should
never before have been chosen as the text of a sacred musical com-
position. The story is so natural and pathetic, and forms so complete
a whole; its lesson is so thoroughly Christian; the characters, though
few, are so perfectly contrasted, and the opportunity for the employment
of "local colour" is so obvious, that it is indeed astonishing to find the
subject so long overlooked.

The only drawback is the shortness of the narrative, and the conse-
quent necessity for filling it out with material drawn from elsewhere.

In the present case this has been done as sparingly as possible, and
entirely from the Scriptures. In so doing the Prodigal himself has been
conceived, not as of a naturally brutish and depraved disposition, — a
view taken by many commentators with apparently little knowledge
of human nature, and no recollection of their own youthful impulses;
but rather as a buoyant, restless youth, tired of the monotony of home,
and anxious to see what lay beyond the narrow confines of his father's
farm, going forth in the confidence of his own simplicity and ardour,
and led gradually away into follies and sins which, at the outset, would
have been as distasteful as they were strange to him.

The episode with which the parable concludes has no dramatic con-
nection with the former and principal portion, and has therefore not

been treated.

OS 8 8



THE PRODIGAL SON



No. i. INTRODUCTION



No. 2. CHORUS

There is joy in the presence of the angels of

God over one sinner that repenteth.

Like as a father pitieth his own children,
even so is the Lord merciful to them that fear
Him. They shall hunger no more, neither
thirst any more; and God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes. Luke xv. 12 ; Psalm
ciii. 13 ; Rev. vii. 16, 17.



No. 3. SOLO (Tenor)
Acertain man had twosons; and theyounger
said unto his father : Father, give me the por-
tion of goods that falleth to me. For I know
that there is no good but for a man to rejoice,
and also that every man should eat and drink
and enjoy the good of his labour. Luke xv. 1 1,
12 ; Eccles. Hi. 12, 13.

No. 4. RECITATIVE and ARIA

(Bass)

Mv son, attend to my words, incline thine

ear unto my sayings ; Honour the Lord with

thy substance, and with the first-fruits of all

thine increase.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and

in all thy ways acknowledge Him; for the

path of the just is as the shining light^ia^'

shineth more and more unto the perfedrday.

...
Prov. iv. 18, 20.; Hi. 6, 9.



No. 5. RECITATIVE (Soprano)
And the younger son gathered all together,
and took his journey into a far country, and
there wasted his substance with riotous liv-
ing. Luke xv. 13.

No. 6. SOLO (Tenor) and CHORUS

The Revel

Let us eat .unl drink, for to-morrow we die.
1714!



Fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with
strong drink ; and to-morrow shall be as this
day and much more abundant. Let us eat and
drink. Isaiah xxii. 13; hi. 12.

No. 7. RECITATIVE (Contralto) and
CHORUS

Woe unto them that rise up early in the
morning that they may follow strong drink,
that continue until night till wine inflame
them. And the harp and the viol, the tabret
and pipe are in their feasts ; but they regard
not the work of the Lord, neither consider
the operation of His hands.

The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of
them that rejoice endeth ; the joy of the harp
ceaseth. Isaiah v. II, 12; xxiv. 8.



No. 8. SONG (Contralto)
Love not the world, nor the things that are
in the world : for the world passeth away and
the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever. 1 John it. 1 7.



No. 9. RECITATIVE (Soprano)
And when he had spent all, there arose a
mighty famine in that land ; and he began
.to be in want. And he went and joined him-
self to a citizen of that country ; and he sent
him into his fields to feed swine. And he
would fain have fillet! himself with the husks
that the swine did cat ; and no man gave unto
him. Luke xv. 14-16.

No. 10. ARIA (Soprano)
O that thou hadst hearkened to my com-
mandments ! then had thy peace been like a
river, and thy righteousness as the waves "I
the sea. Turn ye, turn ye, why will ve die r
Isaiah xlviii. I 8 ; Exek. xxxiii. I I .



No. II. SOLO {Tenor)
How many hired servants of my father's have
bread enough and to spare, and I perish with
hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and
willsayuntohim,Father,Ihavesinned against
Heaven and before thee, and am no more wor-
thy to be called thy son ; make me as one of
thy hired servants. Luke xv. I 7— 1 9.

No. 12. CHORUS

There is joy in the presence of the angels of
God over one sinner that repenteth. The sa-
crifices of God are a broken spirit ; a broken
and contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not
despise. Luke xv. 10 ; Psalm li. 17.

No. 13. RECITATIVE {Soprano) and

DUET

And he arose and came to his father, but

when he was yet a great way off his father

saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and

fell on his neck and kissed him. Luke xv. 20.

DUET {Tenor and Bass)

Son. Father, I have sinned against Heaven

and in thy sight, and am no more worthy

to be called thy son.

Father. My son is yet alive! Now let me die,

since I have seen thy face, and thou art yet

alive. Luke xv. 2 1 ; Gen. xlv. 28 ; xlv't. 30.

No. 14. RECITATIVE and ARIA

{Bass)

Bring forth the best robe and put it on him,

and bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it,

and let us eat and be merry.

Forthis my son was dead and is alive again ;
he was lost an J is found. Like as a father piti-
eth his own children, even so is the Lord mer-
ciful to them that fear Him.

Blessed be God who hath heard my prayer,
and not turned his mercy from me. Luke xv.
22; Psalm eiii. 13; Ixvl. 20.



No. 15. CHORUS

that men would praise the Lord for His
goodness, and declare the wonders that he
doeth for the children ot men.

Let them give thanks whom the Lord
hath redeemed. They went astray in the wil-
derness out of the way ; hungry and thirsty
their souls fainted in them ; yet when they
cried unto the Lord in their trouble He de-
livered them out of their distress.

O that men would therefore praise the
Lord for His goodness, and declare the won-
ders that he doeth for the children of men.
Psalm cvii. 4-6, 8.

No. 16. RECITATIVE and ARIA
{Tenor)

No chastening for the present seemeth to be
joyous, but grievous ; nevertheless, afterward
it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteous-
ness ; for whom the Lord loveth He chas-
teneth, and scourgeth every son whom He
received).

Come, ye children, and hearken unto me:

1 will teach you the fear of the Lord. Lo,
the poor crieth, and the Lord heareth him;
yea, and saveth him out of all his troubles.
He/>. xii. 11,6; Psalm xxxiv. 6, 1 1.

No. 17. QUARTET {unaccompanied)
The Lord is nigh unto them that arc of a
contrite heart, and will save such as be of an
humble spirit. Thus saith the Lord, I have
seen his ways, and will heal him : I will lead
him also, and restore comforts unto him and
to his mourners. Psalm xxxiv. 18; Isaiah
Ivii. 18.

No. 18. CHORUS

Thou, O Lord, art our Father, our Re-
deemer; Thy name is from everlasting.
Hallelujah! Amen. Isaiah Ixiii. 16.
