Canticle of Zechariah

Blessed be the Lord,

The God of Israel;

He has come to His people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty Saviour,

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 our father 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.

You, My child shall be called

The prophet of the Most High,

For you will go before the Lord to prepare His way,

To give his people knowledge of salvation

By the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our Lord

The dawn from on high shall break upon us,

to shine on those who dwell in darkness

And the shadow of death,

And to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory to the Father,

and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning.

is now, and will be forever.

Amen.
