R36. Luke 1:46-56: My soul and spirit, filled with joy

My soul and spirit, filled with joy,
my God and Saviour praise,
Whose goodness did from poor estate
his humble handmaid raise.

Me bless’d of God, the God of might,
all ages shall proclaim;
From age to age his mercy lasts,
and holy is his name.

Strength with his arm th’ Almighty shewed;
the proud his looks abased;
He cast the mighty to the ground,
the meek to honour raised.

The hungry with good things were filled,
the rich with hunger pined:
He sent his servant Isr’el help,
and called his love to mind;

Which to our fathers’ ancient race
his promise did ensure,
To Abrah’m and his chosen seed
forever to endure.
