LUKE 1. 46.

MY soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden. For behold, from henceforth, all generations shall call me blessed. For he who is mighty hath magnified me; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him, throughout all generations. He hath shown strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seat; and

hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. Herememberinghismescy, hath holpen his servant Israel, as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed for ever.

Or else this Psalm. PsALM 98.

O SING unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things. With his own right hand, and with his holy arm, hath he gotten himself the victory. The Lord declared his salvation; his righteousness hath he openly shown in the sight of the heathen. He hath remembered his mercy and truth toward the house of Israel; and all the ends of the world have seen the salvation of our God. Show yourselves joyful unto the Lord, allye lands;

sing, rejoice, and give thanks. Praise the Lordupon the

harp; sing to the harp with a psalm of thanksgiving; With trumpets also and

shawms, Oshow.yourselves joyful before the Lord the king. Let the sea make anoise, and all that therein is; the round world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap their hands; and let the hills be joyful together before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth. With righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
