More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site.

Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

14. Magnificat

My soul praises the Lord;
my heart rejoices in God my Savior,
because he has shown his concern for his humble servant girl.
From now on, all people will say that I am blessed,
because the Powerful One has done great things for me.
His name is holy.

Magnify the Lord, magnify the Lord,
magnify the Lord who is my Savior and my God!
Magnify the Lord, magnify the Lord,
magnify the Lord who is my Savior!

God will show his mercy forever and ever
to those who worship and serve him.
He has done mighty deeds by his power.
He has scattered the people who are proud
and think great things about themselves. (Refrain)

He has brought down rulers from their thrones
and raised up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
and sent the rich away with nothing. (Refrain)

He has helped his servant, the people of Israel,
remembering to show them mercy
as he promised to our ancestors,
to Abraham and to his children forever. (Refrain)
