There are 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 should sound reasonable (though that depends very much on your hardware/software; mine is a Soundblaster AWE64 Gold).
Voice-emphasised Midi Files of the whole work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above). My Website (above) also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There is a full opera performance of this Work by Carlos Kleiber and the Vienna Opera (1978) on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaypJ4kmYCE. I recommend you watch this!
