what has already happened . . .

{Luke 1:68-79}

blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for He has visited and redeemed His people
and has raised up a horn of salvation for us

in the house of His servant David,
as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from of old,
that we should be saved from our enemies
and from the hand of all who hate us;

to show the mercy promised to our fathers
and to remember His holy covenant,
the oath that He swore to our father Abraham,
to grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies,
might serve Him without fear,

in holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.

and you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the Lord to prepare His ways,
to give knowledge of salvation to His people

in the forgiveness of their sins
because of the tender mercy of our God,
whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high

to give light to those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death
to guide our feet to the way of peace.
