All: He has come to his people and set them free
Children: Praise God who keeps his promises!
All: He set the power of salvation in the center of our lives
Leader: Blessed be God, who brings salvation through the house of David
All: Who shows mercy to our ancestors, and rescues us from evil.
Children: We can worship God without fear
All: The Lord himself makes us holy and righteous, so we can serve him.
Leader: Praise God who raised up John the Baptist, the prophet,
All: He prepared the way, so God's people might know salvation
Children: God chooses to forgive our sin! He is kind! He is gentle!
All: The light from heaven will break in upon us
To shine on those in the darkness,
And in the shadow of death.
One step at a time, God will show us the path of peace.
