The Magnificat (Canticle of Mary)
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He
has looked with favor on His lowly servant.
Fram this day all generations will call me
blessed: the Almighty has done great things
for me, and holy is His Name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of His arm,
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their
thrones, and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of His wervant Israel
for he has remembered His promise of mercy,
the promise He made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children forever.
