LYRICS

He has raised up a mighty Saviour for us; Blessed be the Lord
born of the house of his servant David; Blessed be the Lord
Through his holy prophets he promised of old; Blessed be the Lord
that he would save us from the hands of all those who hate us; Blessed be the Lord

Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel,
he has visited his people and redeemed them

So his love for our fathers is fulfilled; Blessed be the Lord
and his holy covenant remembered; Blessed be the Lord
this was the oath that he swore to our father Abraham; Blessed be the Lord
that free from fear and saved from our enemies hands; Blessed be the Lord
we would be free to worship him without fear; Blessed be the Lord
holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life; Blessed be the Lord

As for you little child you’ll be called a prophet of the most high;
Blessed be the Lord
you’ll go ahead of the Lord to pre-pare his ways be fore him;
Blessed be the Lord

He will make known to people their salvation; Blessed be the Lord
through forgiveness of all their sins; Blessed be the Lord
the loving kindness of the heart of our God; Blessed be the Lord
who visits us like the dawn from on high; Blessed be the Lord

He will give light to those in darkness
those who dwell in the shadow of death
and guide us into the way of peace
