Magnificat
Daniel Taylor & The Trinity Choir Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour
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 scattered 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 remembering his mercy hath holpen




His servant Israel as he promised to our
Forefathers, Abraham and his seed, for ever
