From the recording Tell Us Of The Night
My Soul Doth Magnify The Lord
Composer: Randall Thompson
Text: The Bible; Luke I: 46
My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour
For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden:
For, behold, from henceforth all
Shall call me blessed.
For He that is mighty hath done to me great things;
And holy is His name.
And His mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
He hath shew’d strength with his arm,
He hath scatter’d the proud in the im
agination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seats,
And exalted them of low degree.
He hath fill’d the hungry with good things;
And the rich he hath sent empty away.
He hath holpen his servant Israel in remembrance of his mercy;
e spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed forever.
