Luke 1:77-79 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

77 to give his people knowledge of salvation
    through the forgiveness of their sins,
78 because of the tender mercy of our God
    by which the daybreak from on high[a] will visit us
79 to shine on those who sit in darkness and death’s shadow,
    to guide our feet into the path of peace.”
