Merry Christmas Eve! Today I’m posting a remastered recording of the choral version of Mary’s Song, recorded at All Saints Church on Christmas Eve 2016.
I’m so grateful to Beth Linnartz (who I think did the solo perfectly) and to the choir and congregation at All Saints for all their support in bringing what had been ‘in my head’ for years to life in a worship service.
Grace and peace to you all this Christmas Eve!

My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit has rejoiced in God my savior. For he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
For he has regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
His mercy is on them who fear him throughout all generations. He has fed the hungry with good things and the rich he has sent empty away.
He has showed strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their seat, and has exalted the humble and meek.
He has helped his servant, the people Israel, remembering his mercy as promised to our fathers, Abraham and his children forever.
(Text of choral arrangement, based on 1940 Hymnal.)
