I’ve enjoyed discovering Nathan Drake at Reawaken Hymns during 2020.
This rendition of The Magnificat is a little different from his usual treatments of more well-known hymns, but is a great demonstration that simplicity doesn’t mean a lack of strength.

The lyrics:
My Soul Glorifies the lord
and my spirit rejoices
In God my savior

He has looked down with his favor
On his humble servent
Now all generations
Will call me blessed

The Almighty
Has Done great things for me
Holy is his name
Holy is his name

He shows mercy to all
All those who fear him
From generation
To generation

He has shown the strength of his arm
And scattered the prideful
He’s brought down the mighty
And lifted the lowly

He has filled
The hungry with good things
The rich with nothing
Holy is his name

He has come to Isreal
To fulfill his promise
To those gone before us
The promise of grace.
