Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: and he shall bring forth judgement to the Gentiles.
Say to the daughters of Sion, Behold thy salvation cometh, his reward is with him and his work before him.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he hath redeemed his people.
And hath raised up a mighty salvation for us in the house of his servant David.
That we being delivered out of the hands of our enemies might serve him without fear in holiness and righteousness before him all the days of our life.
Blessed is he that cometh in the Name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest. Hallelujah.
