Magnificat of a Precious Child of God
A Magnificat is a canticle used in Christian liturgy, especially at vespers and evensong, the text being the hymn of the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:46–55). I wrote this Magnificat while on silent retreat in March 2021.
All praise and honor to my Creator, my Savior, and my Protector!
When I feel alone, I am comforted to know that the Holy Spirit prays with me.
When I am silenced by suffering, I am grateful that the Holy Spirit prays through me.
When I feel helpless, I am strengthened by knowing that Jesus, who resides with the Father, is praying for me.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever!
