Pray

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;

he has come to his people to set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty Savior,

born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old,

that he would save us from our enemies,

from the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers

and to remember his holy Covenant.

This was the oath he swore to Abraham:

to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

free to worship him without fear,

holy and Righteous in his sight

all the days of our life.
