Magnificat
David Haas Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

All that I am sings of the God who brings new life to birth in me
My spirit soars on the wings of my Lord

1. My soul gives glory to the Lord, rejoicing in my saving God
who looks upon me in my state, and all the world will call me blessed
For God works marvels in my sight, and holy, holy is God's name

2. God's mercy is from age to age, on those who follow in fear
Whose arm is power and strength, and scatters all the proud of heart
Who casts the mighty from their thrones and raises up the lowly ones

3. God fills the starving with good things, the rich are left with empty hands




Protecting all the faithful ones, remembering Israel with mercy
the promise known to those before and to their children for ever

Meditation on The Pieta
By John Joseph
You took Him to your bosom...
You pressed His silent face...
Against your pierced Heart...
You knew Him in His wellness and His wounds
You touched, opened and felt the empty lines of
His Palms...
Would they ever receive you as His mother...

You took Him to your
Bosom....
Lifeless, lingering in air
Darkness, death clinging you, for the very...
Last time moment
Pressed His silent Body
To your Mother being..
Truly! They have no Wine..

And yet despite her inhumane and terrible quality of life she still trusted the Lord. What an extremely strong spirit!❤️😭

@@JAllen-np2xu That's why Satan and the Demons are SCARED and TERRIFIED of the Blessed Virgin Mary because the Virgin Mary is HUMBLE, while Satan is PROUD and BOASTFUL.
