Scripture: Luke 1:46–1:55
In response to Elizabeth’s blessing, Mary, in vv. 46-55, bursts forth into a joyful hymn of praise to God for His faithfulness to fulfill His covenant promises. The major idea of Mary’s song is to show how Mary trusts in God’s fulfillment of His covenant promises to Abraham. Mary praises God for four of His moral attributes, namely, His grace, power, holiness and mercy (i.e., covenant faithfulness, lovingkindness).
