Week 4 – Magnificat – Advent 2018

Bellwether_journal_cover_stamp-11Welcome to Advent 2018

This year we are going to blog our way through the whole season of Advent & Christmas sharing one song a day! In week 1 we looked at advent songs that draw from OT language. In week 2 we are looking at gorgeous Advent texts that have been retuned. In Week 3 we will explore newer texts/tunes that we’ve sung (or hope too!). Into Week 4 – an exploration of versions of the Lukan canticles – Mary’s Song, Zechariah’s Song, the Angels Song, and Simeon’s Song.

Sister Sinjin is a relatively new group hailing from the glorious metropolis of Indianapolis, IN. Musicians Elizabeth Duffy, Kaitlyn Ferry, and Elise Erikson Barret write, arrange, and perform. This new version of the Magnificat was written and recorded for their 2016 album Incarnation.


LYRICS:

God who is mighty
has done great things for me
Holy Holy
is his name

His mercy is on those who fear him
in every generation
He shows the strength of his arm
He scatters the proud

God who is mighty
has done great things for me
Holy Holy
is his name

He casts down the mighty
He lifts up the lowly
He fills the hungry with good things
The rich he sent away empty

God who is mighty
has done great things for me
Holy Holy
is his name

He comes to help his servant Israel
the promise he made of mercy
He promised our fathers
He promised his children

God who is mighty
has done great things for me
Holy Holy
is his name

My soul rejoices
in God my Savior
my soul rejoices
my soul rejoices
