1.  Blest be 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 fulfill 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!
