The Virgin Bears Salvation

Minister: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!

Praise the Lord!
All you servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord!

Bless the name of the Lord,
From this moment out,
Forever and for aye!

From the point of the sun rising,
To the place it goes down,
The Lord’s name must be praised.

The Lord is high above all the nations of men,
And His glory is higher than the heavens themselves.
Who is like Him?
Who is like the Lord who dwells on high?

He humbles Himself to even look down at the heavens,
And has to stoop to see what is on the earth.

But He still raises the poor from the dirt,
And lifts the destitute off his dunghill,
And sets him with princes,
Even with the princes of his own people.

He makes the barren woman to set up house,
And makes her the joyful mother of children.
He makes the virgin bear salvation Himself.

Praise the Lord!

And so, gracious Father, we worship You now through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end, amen.
