Verse 1
Blessed be the God of Israel
Who comes to set us free
And raises up new hope for us
A Branch from David’s tree
So have the prophets long declared
That with a mighty arm
God would turn back our enemies
And all who wish us harm

Verse 2
With promised mercy will God still
The covenant recall
The oath once sworn to Abraham
From foes to save us all
That we might worship without fear
And offer lives of praise
In holiness and righteousness
To serve God all our days

Verse 3
My child as prophet of the Lord
You will prepare the way
To tell God’s people they are saved
From sin’s eternal sway
Then shall God’s mercy from on high
Shine forth and never cease
To drive away the gloom of death
And lead us into peace
