+ Magnificat. S. Luke 1. 46.

(This fhall be faid or fung‡ after the first Leffon in the Evening Service.)



Y foul doth magnify the Lord: and my fpirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

For he hath regarded: the lowlinefs of his hand-maiden. * For behold, from henceforth: all generations shall call me bleffed.

For he that is mighty hath magnified me: and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him: throughout all generations.

[ocr errors]

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

He hath put down the mighty from their feat: and hath exalted the humble and meek.

He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath fent empty away.

He remembring his mercy, hath holpen his fervant Ifrael: as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his feed for ever. Glory be to the Father, &c. As it was in the beginning, &c.

Or else this Pfalm, except it be on the Nineteenth Day of the Month.

Paraphrafe on the MAGNIFICAT.

I joyfully praife God my Saviour: because he hath deigned to fhew fuch regard to his Servant in her lowly ftation-For henceforth future Ages will pronounce me truly happy; fince he who is infinitely powerful and holy hath been pleased to beftow upon me this honour: tho his kindness indeed extends to perfons of every Nation and Condition that truly ferve him--He hath

wonderfully disappointed the expectations of the ambitious. He hath depreffed the proud Rulers of the Earth, and exalted the lowly in Heart.-He hath filled those who hunger after Righteousness with the bounties of his Grace, but the rich in Spirit he hath rejected. He hath fent forth a Saviour to Ifrael as he promised to Abraham and his Seed.

For behold from henceforth, &c. On this paffage the Church of Rome feems to have founded, in fome measure, that adoration which she pays to the Virgin Mary; through a mistaken interpretation of the Word Bleed: which, in the Scriptures, when it relates to a human perfon, generally fignifies happy.

Cantate Domino. Pfalm 98.


Sing unto the Lord a new fong: for he hath done marvellous things.

With his own right hand, and with his holy arm: hath he gotten himself the victory.

The Lord declared his falvation: his righteousness hath he openly fhewed in the fight of the heathen.

He hath remembred his mercy and truth toward the house of Ifrael and all the ends of the world have feen the falvation of our God.


Shew yourselves joyful unto the Lord, all ye lands: rejoice, and give thanks.

Paraphrafe in the 98th PSALM,

O praife the Lord with unafual Fervency, for he hath wrought wonderful Things for us.-By his own mighty power he hath vanquished our Foes. He hath granted us a remarkable Deliverance in the fight of the Nations around us.-He hath performed the gracious promifes which he made to Ifrael; and all the World must own him to be a Saviour indeed-O'therefore express your joyful Gratitude to him, ye favoured people, in Hymns of praife: and with your Voices unite

every melodious Instrument, to heighten your Devotion, and help you worthily to celebrate Jehovah your King-Let the loud Ocean, and its Fullness, the Earth and its Inhabitants join the folemn Concert.-Let the Floods pour forth in full ftreams their applaufe; and theMountains exulting raise their lofty Heads; for the Lord reigneth over all the Kingdoms of the World with Juftice and Equity. All Glory, &c.,

Paraphrafe on the CREED.

I believe that there is one God, the Almighty Father of a Men, the Creator of all Things. I believe alfo that Jefus Chrift (who appeared in Judea in the Reigns of the Roman Emperors. Auguftus and Tiberius,) is his only Son, and our Lord-That he was conceived, and born of Mary a pure Virgin, of the lineage of David, by the Holy Spirit-that he underwent many fufferings at the time when Pontius Pilate was Governor of Judea, was at length fixed to a Crofs, and died under that torture, that his body was buried, and his foulapalled into the invifible State of Spirits departed. That role again from the dead the third day he and after being feen upon earth forty days afcended into Heaven from whence he fhall come again at the and of the world to judge the living and the dead.
