Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee:
"This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles."
Thou saidst, Fear not.
"For, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy,
Which shall be to all people."
O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul;
Thou hast redeemed my life.
"Blessed be the Lord God of Israel;
For he hath visited and redeemed his people,
And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us
In the house of his servant David."
