Original text and translations
Luke 1:68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
Luke 1:69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
Luke 1:70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began.
Ps.35:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men, full of grace are thy lips, because God hath blessed thee for ever.
Zech.9:9a Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee.
Angels, from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
Ye who sang Creation's story,
Now proclaim Messiah's birth.
Come and worship,
Worship Christ the newborn King.
