My soul glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. - Luke 1:46-53
During her visit to her cousin, Elisabeth, the young Mary, exploded into an ecstatic song of rejoicing praise and exultation, as she sang her psalm of celebration – and marveled at the wonderful work of God – her Saviour and her Lord.
And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me—holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.”
And Holy is his name...what is your song of praise?
