The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

An Humble Saint Will Never Praise

For Christmas

Mary, the Mother of Jesus
From “Mary's Song,”
The Magnificat

Words: Charles Wesley, Hymns on the Four Gospels: St. Luke, #1158. “My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my,” Gospel of St. Luke i. 46, 47.

Source: George Osborn, ed., The Poetical Works of John and Charles Wesley. Vol. 11 (London: Wesleyan-Methodist Conference Office, 1871), p. 110.

An humble saint will never praise
Himself, or glory in his grace;
    But lives to magnify
His Saviour by all heaven adored,
But dies rejoicing in the Lord
    Exalting the Most-High.
