The actual words are even better:

"All we, like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way (punctuation was mine, after having sung this chorus maybe 40 times in concert)." I don't want to speculate that anyone in politics today is being referred to in the next lines: "And the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."

I've thought-sung a LOT of Haendel while cycling (and Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and ... and a bunch more!). It's one of the best things about being a choral singer - you always have tunes as you pedal! And you can play the entire piece to yourself at one time - can't do that if you're singing it in real.

But I also found it's really hard to maintain breath control for both fast riding and difficult singing all at the same time! So I can only really thought-sing.
