Song of Mary (Magnificat) | Hymn of the Week

Lyrics

Intro
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
For he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:

Refrain
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.

Verse 1
He has mercy on those who fear him
In every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
And has lifted up the lowly.

Refrain
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.

Verse 2
He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
For he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers,
To Abraham and his children for ever.

Refrain
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.

The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.

Outro
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
For he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed.
