Magnificat: Holy is His Name (Luke 1:46-55)
Copyright © 2013 Becka deHaan

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
Because of God my Savior, my spirit is glad;
For he’s favoured me in my lowliness;
And from now on my name will with honour be clad.
For the mighty God has done great things for me;
With mercies from age to age.
Chorus: Holy, holy is his name;
Holy, holy is his name;
He has mercy to forbear
All generations everywhere;
So holy is his name.

He has shown his power and his glory,
Knocking proud and mighty kings from their thrones;
And lifted the meek and the lowly,
Till they praise the Lord in grateful tones;
Lifting the needy right out from the ashes
Seat them way up in the princes’ wing;
He’s filled the hungry with a good, good feast,
Sent the rich away without a thing.


Surely the Lord has not forgotten us;
No, he has neither slumbered nor slept;
But he has remembered the promise he made,
A promise he has faithfully kept.
O, he has come to help his servant Israel,
Showing her his steadfast love;
His word to Abraham is true to this day:
With descendants as the stars above!
[Choir Chorus.]
Oo, oo, I’m talkin’ ‘bout the tender mercy!
Holy is his name.
He has mercy to forebear
All generations everywhere;
So holy is his name,
The name above all names
(holy is his name.)
I’ll say it one more time
Holy is his name!
