* Canticle: Magnificat  M. Praetorius

My soul doth magnify the Lord,

In God, my Savior shall rejoice;

He raises me from low estate,

And gives a hundred blessings voice.


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.


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.


Remembering His mercy sure,

His servants, Israel, embrace;

As prophesied in days of old,

to Abraham and all his race.


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.


All Glory to the Father God,

and to the Son, whom we adore;

The Holy Spirit, three in one,

Forever, and forever more.

* Postlude


Romans 5:1-5 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
