68 Blessed is the Lord, the God of Israel,ad
because he has visited
and provided redemption for his people.ae
69 He has raised up a horn of salvation for usaf
in the house of his servant David,a
of his holy prophets in ancient times;b
and from the hand of those who hate us.
72 He has dealt mercifully with our fathersc
and remembered his holy covenantd—
73 the oath that he swore to our father Abraham.e
He has given us the privilege,
from the hand of our enemies,
to serve him without fear
in his presence all our days.
