Praise the Lord, the God of Israel!
He has come to save his people.
Our God has given us a mighty Savior
from the family of David his servant.
Long ago the Lord promised by the words
of his holy prophets to save us from
our enemies and from everyone who hates us.
God said he would be kind to our people
and keep his sacred promise.
He told our ancestor Abraham that he would
rescue us from our enemies.
Then we could serve him without fear,
by being holy and good as long as we live.
Luke 1:68-75 CEV
