Advent Joy!

My spirit rejoices in God my Savior... -- Luke 1:47

With joy and hope, we sing with Mary:

We magnify the Lord,

we rejoice in God our Savior

for God comes to us.

God works through us

so that all call us blessed.

God who is mighty does great things for us.

Holy is God's name.

God's mercy is great.

God shows strength,

scattering the proud,

bringing down the powerful,

exalting the lowly,

filling the hungry,

sending the rich empty away.

God remembers and does

all that God has promised.

This beautiful Advent song expresses God's purpose and power in the world.

Wherever God's people sing this song with their lives, this world is infused with compassion, justice and faith.

Wherever God's people sing this song with their resources, this world is made more gentle, hospitable and peaceful.

Wherever God's people sing this song with their spirit, this world is seasoned with the salt and leaven of holiness.

Let us sing this song today as Advent anticipation continues, as our hearts are made ready for Christ who comes into our world anew this Christmas.

Sharing joy with you in this holy season,

--by Bishop Hope Morgan Ward, MS AC
