37 A THE SONG OF MARY
Magnificat anima mea

1 My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,*
my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour,
2 For he has looked with favour on his lowly servant.*
From this day all generations will call me blessèd:
3 The Almighty has done great things for me*
and holy is his name.
4 He has mercy on those who fear him,*
in every generation.
5 He has shown the strength of his arm*
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
6 He has cast down the mighty from their thrones*
and has lifted up the lowly.
7 He has filled the hungry with good things*
and the rich he has sent away empty.
8 He has come to the help of his servant, Israel,*
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
9 The promise he made to our forebears,*
to Abraham and his children for ever.
Glory . . . Luke 1. 46-55
