My soul doth magnify the Lord, In God, my Savior shall rejoice;

He raises me from low estate, And gives a hundred blessings voice.

All generations call me blest, Yes, God has done great things for me;

And Holy is his righteous name, To those who know His majesty.

His arm is strong to all who fear, The proud He scatters in their greed;

He casts the mighty from their thrones, and lifts the lowly from their need.

He fills the hungry with good things, The rich He sends away in shame;

The humble He has lifted high, to magnify His holy name.

Remembering His mercy sure, His servants, Israel, embrace;

As prophesied in days of old, to Abraham and all his race.

All glory to the Father be and to the Son, whom we adore,

The Holy Spirit: One in Three, Forever and forevermore.       - A. Carpenter

Scripture

I Corinthians 1:26-29 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.
