With Mary let my soul rejoice,
And praise God's holy name-
His saving love from first to last,
From age to age, the same!

How strong his arm, how great his power!
The proud he will disown;
The meek and humble he exalts
To share his glorious throne.

The rich our God will send away
And feed the hungry poor;
The arms of love remain outstretched
At mercy's open door.

So shall God's promise be fulfilled,
To Israel firmly made:
A child is born, a Son is given
Whose crown will never fade.

All glory to the Father, Son
And Spirit now proclaim;
With Mary let the world rejoice
And praise God's holy name!
