Was Mary Singing?

When listening to favorites songs, I sing along. That can be embarrassing.

I remember two of those times.

On the first occasion, I was at my sister and brother-in-law’s and wearing ear phones. They caught me in the act; singing along and unaware I was giving a concert.

In incident #2, I was dating my future husband Norm.

He was a DJ at WNDR Syracuse, New York and we were listening to the radio in the car. Always the clown, he heard me singing along and quickly turned down the volume on the radio!

Was Mary singing?

If so, we should all sing along…

(‘Mary’s song, The Magnificat’)

“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever (Luke 1:46-55 KJV).”
