68 Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, h
because He has visited
in the house of His servant David, l
of His holy prophets in ancient times; m
and from the clutches n of those who hate us.
72 He has dealt mercifully with our fathers o
and remembered His holy covenant p—
73 the oath that He swore to our father Abraham. q
He has given us the privilege,
from our enemies’ clutches, r
to serve Him without fear
in His presence all our days.
a prophet of the Most High, s
for you will go before the Lord
to prepare His ways, t
through the forgiveness of their sins. u
the Dawn from on high v will visit us
and the shadow of death, w
to guide our feet into the way of peace.
