My Soul Proclaims That God is Good (hymn preview)

Fourth Sunday Year C

My Soul Proclaims That God is Good
GREENSLEEVES 8.7.8.7 with Refrain (“What Child Is This?”)

My soul proclaims that God is good
I sing to God my Savior.
For God has blessed me! I am loved!
God looks on me with favor.
God is not far away;
God cares for people every day.
God sees and loves the poor
And gives to them a blessing.

The Mighty One has done great things;
I see God’s hand of mercy.
God’s people know the love God brings;
They know that God is holy.
God is not far away;
God cares for people every day.
God sees and loves the poor
And gives to them a blessing.

God casts the mighty from their thrones;
The proud will surely scatter.
God lifts the lowly, hurting ones,
And shows them their lives matter.
God is not far away;
God cares for people every day.
God sees and loves the poor
And gives to them a blessing.

God fills the hungry with good things;
And sends the rich ones hungering.
God’s promise was to immigrants
And also to their children.
God is not far away;
God cares for people every day.
God sees and loves the poor
And gives to them a blessing.
