The Song of Zechariah

Played on the Guitar. Originally from – An Wasserflüssen Babylon Strasbourg, 1525


With reference to Luke 1: 68-79.

“Blest be the God of Israel,
for he has come to set us free;
in David’s house the Lord has raised
salvation’s horn for all to see.
He through his prophets long ago
said he would save us from our foe,
from all who scorn and hate us.
He has not put our fathers’ faith to shame
but, in his love remembering them,
has kept the oath he swore to Abraham.”.
