Apertum est os Zachariae et repletus est Spiritu Sancto et prophetavit dicens:
Benedictus Deus Israel, quia visitavit et fecit redemptionem plebis suae
et erexit cornu salutis nobis in domo David pueri sui.

The mouth of Zacharias was opened, and he was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying:
"Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David."
