Zechariah’s song – He will show mercy
Capo 5

Intro[EM] [D/F#] [G]X2

[EM] [D/F#] [G] [C]
Praise to the lord god of Israel
[EM] [D/F#] [G]
He has paid ransom for us
[EM] [D/F#] [G] [C]
(In the) house of David he has raised up
[EM] [D/F#] [G]
Salvation for us all

[EM] [D/F#] [G] [C]
He will remember his covenant
[EM] [D/F#] [G]
The oath he has given to us
[EM] [D/F#] [G] [C]
He will protect us from enemies
[EM] [D/F#] [G]
From the hand of those who hate

[C] [G] [D]
He will show his mercy to us
[C] [G] [D]
Mercy that shines bright as the sun
[C] [G] [D]
And in the shadow of death
[EM] [D/F#] [G]
We will serve him without fear

You my child will be called a prophet
Of the most high God
You will go before the Lord
To prepare the way for him


He will show his mercy to us
Mercy that shines bright as the sun
And in the shadow of death
We will serve him without fear

(Accapella with strings)
He will show his mercy to us
Mercy that shines bright as the sun
And in the shadow of death
He will guide us on to peace

Ordinary Time

They met in a “History of Christian Worship” class in seminary, where they discovered a shared love for old songs in danger of being forgotten. The band’s oeuvre seamlessly weaves the hymns of generations past with their own new songs—often indistinguishably—producing a
sound that ranges from bluegrass-tinged Americana to sacred harp hymn arrangements.
