My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord is based on the story of the Annunciation as told in Luke 1, when the angel come to Mary to tell her she will have a son, the child of God. The accompaniment weaves in lovely echoes of familiar carols.
My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord
Words and music by Susan Mack
Arranged by The Solo Committee
The angel Gabriel was sent from God
To the city Nazareth,
To a virgin espoused to Joseph.
Mary was her name; Mary was her name.
My soul doth magnify the Lord
And rejoiceth in God.
God is mighty and hath done great things.
Holy is His name; Holy is His name.
The angel came to Mary and said,
Hail! Thou art highly favored.
The Lord is with thee. Thou shalt bear a son.
Jesus shall be his name; Jesus shall be his name.
Mary asked the angel then,
How shall this be? I know no man.
The Holy Ghost shall come, he said,
And reveal the Christ; reveal the Christ.
The holy thing that is born of thee
Shall be called the Son of God.
Of his kingdom there shall be no end.
He shall reign forevermore.
