Representative Text

1 All who claim the faith of Jesus
Sing the wonders that were done
When the love of God the Father
O'er our sins the vict'ry won,
When God made the Virgin Mary
Mother of the only Son.

2 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.

3 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:

4 "Magnify, my soul, God's greatness;
In my Savior I rejoice;
All the ages call me blessed,
In His praise I lift my voice;
God has cast down all the mighty,
And the lowly are His choice."

David Hurd (b. Brooklyn, NY, 1950) composed JULION in 1974. The harmony is rich (up to six parts with the descant) and well suited to a rich, smooth organ sonority, including strings.
