R36. My soul and spirit, fill'd with joy

1 My soul and spirit, fill'd with Joy,
my God and Saviour praise;
whose goodness did from poor Estate
his humble handmaid raise.
2 Me bless'd of God, the God of might,
all ages shall proclaim;
from age to age his mercy lasts,
and holy is his name.

3 Strength with his arm th' Almighty show'd;
the proud his looks abas'd;
he cast the mighty to the ground,
the meek to honour rais'd.
4 The hungry with good things were fill'd,
the rich with hunger pin'd:
he sent his servant Isr'el help,
and call'd his love to mind;

5 Which to our fathers' ancient race
his promise did ensure,
to Abrah'm and his chosen seed,
for ever to endure.
