5s for echoing so excrutiatingly exactly Charles Jennens's libretto's numbing repetitiveness. Handel's magnificent music is _so_ much better heard without words, but certainly be more far fun heard with yours than with Jennens's. :-)

Have you seen the youtube flash mob video of assorted people singing the Hallelujah Chorus in a mall? These would be very appropriate lyrics.
