Lyrics:
Blessed be the God of Israel!
You came among us to redeem.
You have raised a mighty savior for us,
as the prophets used to dream.
As you promised, you have saved us,
so that we may serve with grace,
unafraid, with holy spirits,
in your presence all our days.

You, child, go before our God as prophet:
show the people mercy’s way,
so they know they are forgiven, saved and
brought into a brand new day.
Day is dawning—tender mercy!
Grace and light of God, increase!
Come to those in death and shadows.
Guide us in the ways of peace.
