Description

Beautiful Mag and Nunc for SA Choir (with organ). Written for the Orlando Deanery Girl's Choir. Traditional English text.

My soul doth magnify the Lord,
    and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
For he hath regarded
    the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth
    all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me, 
    and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him
    throughout all generations.
He hath showed 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 for ever.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
    as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, 
    according to thy word;
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 
    which thou hast prepared before the face of all people,
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles,
    and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
    as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
