Words & music by Steve Thorngate
Based on Luke 1:68–79
Blessed be the Holy One of Israel,
Who has come and set us free;
Who, from the house of David, gives to us
A strong Savior of peace.
God promised our salvation long ago,
From all hatred and all strife,
A promise that fear would shackle us no more,
All the days of our life.
This child will be the prophet of the Lord,
Who will go prepare the way
And tell the people of salvation,
The grace that comes any day.
In the compassion of our holy God,
Dawn will break among us here
To shine on all under the cloud of death
And guide our feet toward peace.
from After the Longest Night (album & songbook)
