Messiah is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by George Friedrich Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer.

In Part I the text begins with prophecies by Isaiah and others, and moves to the annunciation to the shepherds, the only “scene” taken from the Gospels. 
In Part II, Handel concentrates on the Passion and ends with the “Hallelujah” chorus. 
In Part III he covers the resurrection of the dead and Christ’s glorification in heaven. 
When King George II attended a royal performance of Messiah he stood up for the Hallelujah Chorus in honour of the King of kings. When the king stood everyone in his presence had to stand. So it became the tradition for the audience to stand up when the Hallelujah Chorus is sung, as millions of us have done in honour of the King of kings.

Chorus — Revelation 19:6, 11:15, 19:16
Hallelujah! for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.

The Kingdom of this world is become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; 
and He shall reign for ever and ever.
King of kings, and Lord of lords
and He shall reign for ever and ever.

Hallelujah!

Lyrics: Holy Bible, Authorised Version, 1611, arranged by Charles Jennens, 1741
Music: George Friedrich Handel, 1741

Messiah – with Bible verses and references

All the words – lyrics – of The Messiah with their Bible references and other recording samples are on Handel’s Messiah: entire oratorio with complete Bible verse lyrics.

In July 1741 Charles Jennens sent Handel a new libretto for an oratorio. In a letter dated 10 July to a friend, Jennens wrote: I hope he will lay out his whole Genius & Skill upon it, that the Composition may excell all his former Compositions, as the Subject excells every other subject. The Subject is Messiah.

That libretto is the lyrics of Messiah, all from Scripture.
