prayer01 – THE MAGNIFICAT

_________________________________________
by proclaiming His magnificence
the blessed Virgin accepts her role
as the Lord’s humble servant and mediatrix
for generations to come
my heart proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
my soul rejoices in Him my Saviour
for He has looked with grace
on me His lowly servant
from this day hence
all generations shall call me blessed
because of the great things
He has done for me
from age to age His name is sacred
and His mercy abounds
for those who honor Him
He stretches out His mighty arm
to humble the proud
and unseat powerful kings
He uplifts the lowly
and fills the hungry
and renders the rich empty
luke 1:46-55

what does it profit a man
if he gains the whole world
but suffers the loss
of his immortal soul

do not seek to understand
incomprehensible mysteries
such as how and when the rain and wind will come
you know not the work of the Lord
rather sow your seeds
wherever you have land
if you know not where the flood will fall
let the Lord decide your fate and just do your part
eclesiastes 11:1-8

spiritual blindness
makes you numb and insensitive
it brings out anger
when there should be forgiveness
spiritual blindness
thrives in total darkness
where not a sliver of light
can penetrate the soul
open your heart to the Lord
let His light enter your impenetrable soul
so that you may see
and hear and feel once again
eastwind
