The Magnificat


 My soul glorifies the Lord ,* =  my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour. =  He looks on his servant in her lowliness;* = henceforth all ages will call me blessed.

The Almighty works marvels for me.* = Holy his name! = His mercy is from age to age,* = on those who fear him.

He puts forth his arm in strength* = and scatters the proud-hearted. = He casts the mighty from their thrones* = and raises the lowly.

He fills the starving with good things, = sends the rich away empty.

He protects Israel, his servant,* = remembering his mercy, = the mercy promised to our fathers,* = to Abraham and his sons for ever.
