I Will Sing with All my Soul

This hymn of praise is a setting of the Magnificat, Mary's hymn of praise.

It was written by American Roman Catholic musician, composer and music-publisher Vincent Ambrosetti.

Originally published in the USA, the song appears to have become particularly popular in the Philippines.

The song is set to an unnamed tune, also by Ambrosetti. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of G, the first few notes are B, C D_ B,D A G FG D E_ with accompanying chords G / D / Em / G / C7.

Sheet music is still available - see the link below.

Chorus:
I will sing with all my soul and praise the Lord
My heart is glad because of God my Saviour 
For He has looked upon His humble servant 
And who am I, who am I to merit His love. 

1 He gives His grace anew in every age, ...

2 The Lord is mighty, holy is His name ...

3  He gives in great abundance to the hungry ...

4 His servant Israel, He has remembered well ....

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY Chorus:
I will sing with all my soul and praise the Lord
My heart is glad because of God my Saviour 
For He has looked upon His humble servant 
And who am I, who am I to merit His love. 

1 He gives His grace anew in every age, 
To those who live in rev'rence with Him, 
Grace is His strength, but He unmasks all pride 
And strips us bare of our self conceit. 

2 The Lord is mighty, holy is His name 
And every generation gives Him praise 
Happy am I unto the end of all time 
Because my God has done great things for me.

3  He gives in great abundance to the hungry,And sends the rich away with empty hands,
He dethrones those who hold authority,
And poor and humble people, He makes great!

4 His servant Israel, He has remembered well
He has been merciful to all His people.
