Ye who claim the faith of Jesus

ol-good-counsel

Ye who claim the faith of Jesus,
sing the wonders that were done
when the love of God the Father
over sin the victory won,
when he made the Virgin Mary
mother of his only Son.

Blessed were the chosen people
out of whom the Lord did come;
blessed was the land of promise
fashioned for his earthly home;
but more blessed far the mother,
she who bore him in her womb.

Therefore let all faithful people
sing the honor of her name;
let the Church, in her foreshadowed,
part in her thanksgiving claim;
what Christ’s mother sang in gladness
let Christ’s people sing the same:

“Magnify, my soul, God’s greatness;
in my Savior I rejoice;
all the ages call me blessed,
in his praise I lift my voice;
he has cast down all the mighty
and the lowly are his choice.”
