Let this be recorded for the generation to come,
That a people yet to be created will praise the LORD.
For He looked down from His holy height [of His sanctuary],
From heaven the LORD gazed on the earth,
To hear the sighing of the prisoner,
To set free those who were doomed to death,
So that people may declare the name of the LORD in Zion
And His praise in Jerusalem,
When the peoples are gathered together,
And the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
