Magnificat
Sydney Philharmonia Orchestra & Choir Lyrics


Jump to: Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
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 forever
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

And my innermost self finds great joy in God who saves me
