"Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,1 because he has come and has redeemed his people.2
He has raised up a horn3 of salvation for us in the house of his servant David4
(as he said through his holy prophets of long ago),5
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,7
the oath he swore to our father Abraham:8
to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him9 without fear10
in holiness and righteousness11 before him all our days.
