My soul proclaims the insignificance of me,
and my spirit rejoices in God my very significant Savior;
because in my humble unimportance and smallness,
the Lord has done great things for and through me,
and holy is his name.
He who made the galaxies with countless stars,
and the trees in all their autumnal splendor,
has graced me with existence;
and even though I am but a lowly speck
In this vast expanse of creation,
God finds me lovable, calls me his child,
and sent his only begotten Son to die to save me.
So all generations may call me insignificant,
but they will also call me blessed,
because I can know, love and serve the God
who chastises the proud
and teaches the humble His way—-
and his way is LOVE.
