MAGNIFICAT IN BLUE by Scott Detweiler (public domain)

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
My spirit rejoices in God my savior
For he has looked upon his handmaid’s loneliness
Behold from now on will all ages call me blessed
Oh, oh, oh, oh

The Mighty One has done great things for me
And Holy is his name
His mercy is from age to age to age
To those who fear him
He has shown might with his arm
Disbursed the arrogant of mind and heart
He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones (hey!),
But he has lifted, lifted up the lowly
Oh, oh, oh, oh

The hungry he has filled with good things
The rich he has sent away empty

He has helped Israel, his servant
Remembering his mercy
According to his promise
To our fathers
To Abraham and descendants
And ever
And ever
And ever
