The Magnificat ***

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;

My spirit rejoices in God my savior.

For he has looked with favor upon his handmaid's lowliness.

From this day all generations will call me blessed.

The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.

His mercy 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

but lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things;

and the rich he has sent away empty.

He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy,
