Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

316. Magnificat: Song of the Blessed Virgin

My Soul and Spirit fill'd with Joy,
my God and Saviour praise;
Whose goodness did from poor Estate
his humble Hand-maid raise.
Me blest of God, the God of Pow'r,
all Ages shall confess,
Whose Name is Holy, and whose Love
his Saints shall ever bless.

The proud, and all their vain Designs,
he quickly did confound:
He cast the Mighty from their Seat,
the Meek and Humble crown'd.
The Hungry with good Things are fill'd,
the Rich with Hunger pin'd:
He sent his Servant isr'el help,
and call'd his Love to mind;

Which to our Fathers heretofore,
by Oath he did ensure;
To Abr'am and his chosen Seed,
for ever to endure;
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
the God whom we adore,
Be Glory; as it was, and is,
and shall be evermore.
