Magnify the Lord, All Souls

Magnify the Lord, all souls! Ev’ry spirit, shout with joy!

God has favored, we’ve been blessed. God does great without alloy.

Holy is the Mighty One; merciful to all who fear.

Showing strength with a great arm, scat-’ring proud folks far from here. 


Kings and tyrants are brought down, and the lowly take the throne.

Hungry find their bellies filled, rich folks find their wishes stilled.. 

Mercies we’ve remembered not, God’s completed ev’ry jot.

Evermore those vows will hold. We can go on living. BOLD!
