My soul doth magnify the Lord

My soul doth magnify the Lord And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour

Published in 9 hymnals

Representative Text

My soul doth magnify the Lord;
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour,
For he hath regarded:
the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth:
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me:
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generations.
He hath shewed strength with his arm:
he hath scatter'd the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat:
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things:
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He rememb'ring his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel:
As he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed forever.

[Gloria Patri:]
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son;
and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be;
world without end, Amen, Amen.

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace:
according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles:
and to be the glory of thy people Israel. [Gloria Patri]
