The Magnificat: The 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
From this day all generations will call me
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
He has mercy on those who fear him in every
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 empty away.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham
and his children for ever.
