7: The Prophecy of Zacharias

Because sometimes there’s just no adding to what’s already been said so well,

Luke 1:68-79
Blessed be The Lord God
of Israel,
For he has visited us and
accomplished
redemption for His
people,
And raised up a horn
of salvation for us
In the house of David his
servant–
As he spoke by the
mouth of his holy
prophets from of old–
Salvation from our
enemies,
and from the hand of all
who hate us;
To show mercy toward
our fathers,
And to remember his
holy covenant,
The oath which he
swore to Abraham our
father,
To grant us that we,
being rescued from the
hand of our enemies,
Might serve him without
fear,
In holiness and
righteousness before
him all our days,
And you, child, will be
called the prophet of
the Most High;
For you will go on before
The Lord to prepare his
ways;
To give to his people the
knowledge of salvation
By the forgiveness of
their sins,
Because of the tender
mercy of our God,
With which the Sunrise
from on high will visit
us,
To shine upon those who
sit in darkness and the
shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the
way of peace.
