Description

SATB (some divisi) with organ. Uses the contemporary-language (Rite II) version of the text. Challenging but worth it!

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; *
    for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed: *

    the Almighty has done great things for me,
    and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him *

    in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm, *

    he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, *

    and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, *

    and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel, *

    for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers, *

    to Abraham and his children 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, you now have set your servant free *
    to go in peace as you have promised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, *

    whom you have prepared for all the world to see:
A Light to enlighten the nations, *

    and the glory of your 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.
