Meter: D
Topic: Biblical Names and Places: Jacob; Boasting; Church Year: Advent (10 more...)
Source: Magnificat (based on)
Refrain First Line: My heart shall sing of the day you bring
Notes: The themes of this psalm are echoed in Mary’s song (the Magnificat), which is freely paraphrased in Cooney’s “Canticle of the Turning.” The canticle may be sung at the conclusion of the reading. In anticipation of the congregation’s singing, a soloist could sing just the refrain at the beginning of the reading and after vv. 3, 5, and 8. Accompany the canticle with raucous keyboard accompaniment and djembe.
