Premiered by the New York Treble Singers, Virginia Davidson, Conductor.
My Soul doth magnify the Lord,
and my spirit rejoiced in God my Savior.
For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden,
for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For He that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
And His mercy is on them that fear Him from generation to generation.
He hath shewed strength with His arm;
He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seats,
and exalted them of low degree.
He hath filled the hungry with good things;
and the rich He sent empty away.
He hath holpen His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy.
As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed fore're.
