This is a version of the Magnificat, the song of Mary. It is made into a chorus/verse format, so you could quite easily write a tune and sing it.

This is taken from Bob's book "Bible Stories Throught the Year", and we'd like to thank Lion publishing for permission to reprint it.


Extract from the poem:

Mighty One, Holy One, Merciful forever.
Age to age, each generation spent.
Faithful One, Patient One, whose love cannot be severed.
There’s no other word for him: Magnificent.

My soul cries out, my spirit sings
in praise of God, my saviour,
who looks at me and sees me as I am.
Then lifts me up on angel wings,
hands that never waver
and makes me part of his eternal plan.

Mighty One, Holy One, Merciful forever.
Age to age, each generation spent.
Faithful One, Patient One, whose love cannot be severed.
There’s no other word for him: Magnificent.

He shakes the proud and breaks the crown
and makes the strong man stumble,
he sets the rich man begging in the street.
Then reaches down and from the ground
lifts up the poor and humble
and welcomes them to his forever feast...
