PBO is performing Handel's complete Messiah – along with the Hallelujah Chorus in all of its original glory – this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For more information about those concerts or about PBO, check out their website.

Special Portland Timbers lyrics of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus:

Hallelujah!
Timbers FC omnipotent reigneth
The kingdom of this world
Is become
The kingdom of the green
And gold and white
Green, gold, and white!
The Timbers reign for ever and ever
Timbers sing:
We won the league!
The Timbers reign for ever and ever
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
