Luke i. 68.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel: for He hath visited and redeemed His people;
And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us : in the house of His servant David;
As He spake by the mouth of His Holy Prophets : which have been since the world began;
That we should be saved from our enemies : and from the hands of all that hate us ;
To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers : and to remember His holy Covenant;
To perform the oath which He sware to our forefather Abraham : that He would grant us;
That we being delivered out of the hands of our enemies: might serve Him without fear;
In holiness and righteousness before Him: all the days of our life.
And thou, Child, shalt be called the Prophet of the Highest; for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
To give knowledge of salvation unto his people: for the remission of their sins,
Through the tender mercy of our God: whereby the day-spring from on high hath visited us;
To give light to them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death : and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Luke i. 46.
My soul doth magnify the Lord: and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For He hath regarded : the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold, from henceforth: all generations shall call me blessed.
For He that is mighty hath magnified me: and holy is His Name.
And His mercy is on them that fear Him: throughout all generations.
He hath shewed strength with His arm: He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble and meek:
He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel: as He promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, for ever.
Luke ii. 29.
Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace : according to Thy word.
For mine eyes have seen: thy salvation,
Which Thou hast prepared : before the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the gentiles: and to be the glory of Thy people Israel.
We praise Thee, O God: we acknowledge Thee to be the Lord.
All the Earth doth worship Thee: the Father everlasting
To Thee all Angels cry aloud: the Heavens, and all the Powers therein.
To Thee Cherubim, and Seraphim: continually
