And has raised up a 1horn of salvation for us In the house of David 2His servant -
3As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets 4from of old -
5Salvation 6FROM OUR ENEMIES, And FROM THE HAND OF ALL WHO HATE US;
7To show mercy toward our fathers, 8And to remember His holy covenant,
9The 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,
10In holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.
"And you, child, will be called the 11prophet of 12the Most High; For you will go on 13BEFORE THE LORD TO 14PREPARE HIS WAYS;
To give to His people the knowledge of salvation By 15the forgiveness of their sins,
Because of the tender mercy of our God, With which 16the Sunrise from on high will visit us,
17TO SHINE UPON THOSE WHO SIT IN DARKNESS AND THE SHADOW OF DEATH, To guide our feet into the 18way of peace."
