1 My soul doth magni- fy the Lord,

And my spirit hath re- joiced in God my Saviour.
2 For He hath regarded the low estate of His hand- | maiden:

For behold, from henceforth all generations shall | call me blessed. 3 For He that is mighty hath done to me | great - | things,

And holy | is His Name. 4 And His mercy is on them that | fear Him,

From gener- | ation to gener- | ation. 5 He hath showed strength | with His | arm,

He hath scattered the proud in the imagi- | nation of their hearts. 6 He hath put down the mighty from their seats,

And exalted them of low de- / gree. 7 He hath filled the hungry with good — | things,

And the rich He hath sent empty a-way. 8 He hath holpen his servant | Israel,

In re- | membrance of His mercy.
9 As He spake to our fathers, to | Abraham,

And I to his seed for- | ever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
And to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World without end. A- men.

1 BLESSED be the Lord God of Israel,

For He hath visited | and re- | deemed His | people ;
2. And hath raised up a horn of sal- / vation | for us,

In the house of His servant | David ;
3 As He spake by the mouth of His | holy | prophets,

Which have been | since the world be- gan;
4 That we should be saved from our enemies,
And from the hand of all that I hate us.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
And to the Holy | Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,
World | without | end. A- | men.

1 LORD, now lettest Thou Thy servant de- / part in peace,

According to Thy | word.
2 For mine eyes have seen | Thy sal- | vation,

Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people : 3 A light to lighten the Gentiles,

And the glory of Thy | people | Isra- | el.
Glory be to the Father, &c.

ADVENT.

955

I AWAKE! awake! put on thy | strength, 0 | Zion;

Put on thy beautiful | garments, 1 O Je-| rusalem!

2 Go through, go through the gates, cast up, cast | up the highway;

Gather out the stones, lift up a standard for the people !

3 Prepare ye the way of the Lord !

Make straight in the desert a | highway | for our | God!

4 And the Redeemer shall | come to l Zion,

And unto them that turn | from trans- I gression in | Jacob.

5 O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings,

Lift | up thy | voice with | strength.

6 Lift it up, be | not a- | fraid,

Say unto the cities of Judah, Be- hold your God!

7 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion

With songs and everlasting | joy up on their heads.

8 They shall obtain I joy and I gladness,

And sorrow and I sighing · shall | flee a- | way.

Glory be to the Father, and to the | Son,
And to the | Holy | Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World | without end. A- | men.

1 O LORD, | I will praise Thee: Though Thou wast angry with me, Thine anger is turned away | and Thou |

comfortest | me.

And the government shall be up- on His I shoulder: 4 And His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the | Mighty God,

The Everlasting | Father, the Prince of Peace.

5 Cry out and shout, thou inhabi- | tant of Zion,

For great is the Holy One of Israel · in the midst of | thee.

6 Glory to God in the highest;

And on Earth | peace, good- | will toward | men.

And | to the | Holy | Ghost;
