The Song of Zechariah at the Naming of John the Baptist
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel: for he has come to his people and set them free. He has raised up for us a mighty Savior: born of the house of his servant David. Through his holy
He promised to show mercy to our fathers: and to remember his holy covenant. This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham: to set us free from the hands of our enemies, free to worship him without fear: holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.
In the tender compassion of our God: the dawn from on high shall break upon us; To shine upon all those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death: and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Glory to God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; as in the beginning so now: and forever. Amen. (An Australian Prayer Book (AAPB): 1978)
