Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel (Luke 1:69-75)

R. Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel!

He has visited his people.

 

1. He has raised up for us a mighty saviour

in the house of David his servant,

as he promised by the lips of holy men,

those who were his prophets from of old. (R.)

 

2. A saviour who would free us from our foes,

from the hands of all who hate us.

So his love for our fathers is fulfilled

and his holy covenant remembered. (R.)

 

3. He swore to Abraham our father

to grant us, that free from fear,

and saved from the hands of our foes,

we might serve him in holiness and justice

all the days of our life in his presence. (R.)

 

ALLELUIA

 

Alleluia, alleluia!

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, says the Lord;

no one can come to the Father except through me. Alleluia.
