“I can see you, son, the light of my eyes”

Another image from rehearsal:

From late in the second act: Tobiah comes home with a cure for his father. The song sets Tobit 11:9-15. For the final refrain, three singers conclude:

Tobit:
I can see my son, the light of my eyes.
Blessed be God, O blessed be God,
 and blessed be all God’s holy angels.

Anna:
Praise God all throughout the ages, Alleluia!

Tobiah:
Praise the holy name of God, Alleluia!

My eight-year-old nephew inquired, “Is this classical music?”
