Canticle of Zechariah

This is the ending refrain of the Canticle of Zechariah, part of morning prayers from the Liturgy of the Hours,  prayed every day by priests, deacons, religious and many lay faithful.                  No further commentary is needed…..

“In the tender compassion of our God, the dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those that dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and guide our feet into the way of peace.”
