Perry Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 16 hymnals Scripture: Luke 1:68-79 First Line: Blest be the God of Israel Lyrics: 1 Blest by the God of Israel, Who comes to set us free; Who visits and redeems us, Who grants us liberty. The prophets spoke of mercy, Of freedom and release; God shall fulfull that promise And bring the people peace. 2 God from the house of David A child of grace has given; A Savior comes among us To raise us up to heaven. Before Him goes the herald, Forerunner in the way, The prophet of salvation, The harbinger of day. 3 On those who sit in darkness The sun begins to rise, The dawning of forgiveness Upon the sinner's eyes. God guides the feet of pilgrims Along the paths of peace. O bless our God and Savior With songs that never cease! Used With Tune: MERLE'S TUNE

So have the prophets long declared that with a mighty arm God would turn back our enemies and all who wish us harm. 2 With promised mercy will God still the covenant recall, the oath once sworn to Abraham, from foes to save us all; that we might worship without fear and offer lives of praise, in holiness and righteousness to serve God all our days. 3 My child, as prophet of the Lord you will prepare the way, to tell God’s people they are saved from sin’s eternal sway. Then shall God’s mercy from on high shine forth and never cease to drive away the gloom of death and lead us into peace.

Hymn 50

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 19 hymnals Scripture: Luke 1:68 First Line: Now be the God of Isr'el blessed Lyrics: Now be the God of Isr'el blessed, Who makes his truth appear; His mighty hand fulfils his word, And all the oaths he sware. Now he bedews old David's root With blessings from the skies; He makes the Branch of Promise grow, The promised Horn arise. [John wns the prophet of the Lord, To go before his face; The herald which our Savior God Sent to prepare his ways. He makes the great salvation known, He speaks of pardoned sins; While grace divine, and heav'nly love, In its own glory shines. "Behold the Lamb of God," he cnes. "That takes our guilt away; I saw the Spirit o'er his head, On his baptizing day.] "Be every vale exalted high, Sink every mountain low; The proud must stoop, and humble souls Shall his salvation know. "The heathen realms with Isr'el's land Shall join in sweet accord And all that's born of man shall see The glory of the Lord. "Behold the Morning Star arise, Ye that in darkness sit; He marks the path that leads to peace, And guides our doubtful feet."
