Luke 1:76-79

76 And you, child, will be called a prophet of the Most High,  For you will go before the face of the Lord to make ready his ways,

77 To give knowledge of salvation to his people by the remission of their sins,

78 Because of the tender mercy of our God,  Whereby the dawn from on high will visit us,

79 To shine on those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death;  To guide our feet into the way of peace."
