"Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,1 because he has come and has redeemed his people.269
He has raised up a horna3 of salvation for us in the house of his servant David470
(as he said through his holy prophets of long ago),571
salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us--
to show mercy to our fathers6 and to remember his holy covenant,773
the oath he swore to our father Abraham:874
to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him9 without fear1075
in holiness and righteousness11 before him all our days.
