There is no text/lyrics; these Files were generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score), and so don't look pretty even though they sound reasonable (though that depends very much on your hardware/software; mine is a Soundblaster AWE64 Gold).
A Midi version of the work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above). The Site also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There is an excellent performance of this Work by the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra under Ton Koopman on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMcmBjS94I4 .
