Luke 1:67-80

In this passage we find a song, the song of Zechariah.  Zechariah the priest, finally a father in his old age and now, after more than nine months of being unable to speak, bursts into a song.  What we discover is that this song tells a us a story, the story of humanity and hatred and sin and rescue and true life, the life we were created for.  Indeed Zechariah’s song from centuries ago is a song we need to hear and take to heart today because it is a song of great hope!
