As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets, who have been since the world began;
Deliverance from our enemies and out of the hand of all who hate us;
To fulfill mercy with our fathers and remember his holy covenant,
The oath which he swore to Abraham our father,
To give us, that, saved out of the hand of our enemies, we should serve him without fear
In piety and righteousness before him all our days.
