Magnificat

1    My soul doth magnify the Lord :

and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

2    For he hath regarded :

the lowliness of his handmaiden.

3    For behold, from henceforth :

all generations shall call me blessed.

4    For he that is mighty hath magnified me :

and holy is his Name.

5    And his mercy is on them that fear him :

throughout all generations.

6    He hath shewed strength with his arm :

he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

7    He hath put down the mighty from their seat :

and hath exalted the humble and meek.

8    He hath filled the hungry with good things :

and the rich he hath sent empty away.

9    He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel :

as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed for ever.

Luke 1.46-55

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :

and to the Holy Ghost;

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be :

world without end. Amen.
