My soul exalts and magnifies the King

My soul exalts and magnifies the king,
my spirit in my Saviour finds her joy;
to God the mighty One I’ll ever sing:
hallelujah!

2. To me, his slave, he comes a royal guest,
fills with his bounteous grace my lowliness;
all generations now will call me blessed:
hallelujah!

3. The mighty Lord has done great things for me;
for all who love and fear his holy name,
his mercy shall endure eternally:
hallelujah!

4. His powerful arm has swept the proud aside,
down from their thrones he hurls earth’s mighty kings;
he raises high the humble to his side:
hallelujah!

5. He feeds his servants from his boundless store
and satisfies their hunger with his love;
the boastful rich are banished from his door:
hallelujah!

6. He has fulfilled his covenant of grace
to Abraham and all his promised seed;
redemption dawns on Israel’s chosen race:
hallelujah!
