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."
